The line is open

I'm out. You're on.

I might kick back and watch some Little Rock School Board tonight. They ought to give Baker Kurrus a medal. He'll be missed. Nonetheless, and I'm going to write some more about this later, I think the district is on the cusp of a great opportunity.

NEWS: Good post on congressional action today on Daily Kos. The Repubs rolled out a bunch of pledges for America in the morning, including a promise to help small business shortly before voting against a huge package of benefits for small business. It also turned out all of the GOP's 39 votes to defeat the cleanup of campaign financing created by the Sipreme Court's free pass to unlimited corporate money. Yes. In the U.S. Senate, 39 votes out of 100 wins. And about those wedgies on America: the health care reform promised by Republicans steals heavily from all the good stuff ALREADY PASSED.
