Would someone please tell me where our priorities lay? We’re fighting two wars, still. Our computer networks are constantly under attack. There is a major drought occurring in a large section of our Nation. Head Start, a time tested winner, is in jeopardy. We continue to allow our Education System to be manipulated, and decimated. Our Armed Forces can’t seem to find a solution to the huge numbers of suicides of our active Servicemen/women. And, did anybody realize that one of New York’s largest consumer power suppliers was on strike?

Well, my shorts are in a knot and I am vomiting all over my Friday newspaper.
