      Sometimes the urge to do something is frustrated by not being able to think of anything to do.  Yes I know Mark Pryor pays less attention to me than a fly in the room when he wants to be a militant corporatist, but you might say I'm his backup whenever he decides to act like a Democrat.

      And I'll never understand the R aversion to a jobs program.  It's the absolutely cheapest way to get Business all the infrastructure it needs to keep on making those millions of dollars donated to R re-election campaigns.  Can you think of any other investment that immediately turns back from 20 to 30% (payroll taxes) of what you've spent, plus gets you work done, plus gives a multiplier jolt to the economy?
