Taking a Break

I took yesterday off. Only the second day this month that I wasn't out there working feverishly to put bread on the table. I needed the rest.

Where's Cindy Sheehan? She was supposed to have fixed this problem. And Jane Fonda.

She and Cindy were hoping to draw down the morale of the troops, force the withdrawal of our soldiers from Iraq, and take us back to the good old days when only American men, women, and children in New York City were being killed.

This news must be very demoralizing. Good.
