    I was watching some overwrought coverage this morning, all "Fiscal cliff! Fiscal cliff! Aaaaahhhhhhh!" And then, the talking chuckleheads went on to say negotiations were on to avoid a "complete government shutdown."

    What the what?! A government shutdown? Where the hell did that come from? But apparently asking someone making a million dollars to pay an extra $22,500 in taxes is the end of the American experiment.

    I wonder what we might hear on the teevee machine if we weren't subject exclusively to the ruminations of multi-millionaires, and heard a little bit from folks making less than six figures a year? Even at that, people seem to know where the blame for this clusterfuck lies.
