    Authorities have arrested an Elvis Impersonator from Mississippi for attempting to poison the President and others by sending ricin in the mail.

    Now can we get back to real governance and start fixing things?

      I can't remember the last time the federal government provided real governance.  Reading about an Elvis impersonator from MS sending Ricin through the mail to federal officials is no less a waste of time than watching congress sending the country to hell in a handbasket.

        ..that the "Marathon Bomber" will end up being a Hobbit.

        Government hasn't been this broken in my lifetime. Or as corrupt in my own opinion. There may have been really stupid decisions made, but at least they were made by people who weren't stark, raving, mad.

        And I lived through Nixon.
