From the Top up

The following story has not been making the rounds, however, the Newsweek staff is in dire need of a reason to smile…so I have lowered my non-existent journalistic standards one minute notch to pass along this modified note from the DC Shadow (fictitious, I am sure).


Scott McClellan was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask the White House Press Pool for some mathematical help. Addressing the reporters from the podium, he said, "I assume all of you are college graduates, and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"
Jeff Gannon thought a moment, and then replied, "Everything but my nipple clamps and earrings."

Truth is, I don't know if I WANT to blogroll and have more people reading my blog, as I am a bit afraid (just because you're not paranoid dosen't mean they are NOT out to get you!) of the evil ones as I live on Soc Sec disability + a bit from the IBU. I know those evil ones are a MEAN BUNCH....

Right now I am gonna go peruse your blog some more...

You are probably right to be cautious. I link to you because of the great stuff you post about the local ecology, and the old songs you share are pretty good.

It is way too easy for curious folks to figure out where we are hanging our hats every night, but curious folks aren't the ones we need to worry about. I am more concerned about the lawmakers than the law breakers.
