Thanks for your advice Pat, It means a lot...If others can fake it for the sake of friends and family, not to mention the camaraderie, I guess I can too....
First of all, thanks a LOT for getting back to me, Pat. I agree that the behavior of Congress, particularly toward the president, has all the quality of a BAD Gilbert & Sullivan (to borrow from a fictional Georgia senator).Here's the hell of it, too: there's a better than average chance that the first black president will be followed in office by the first FEMALE president. If that proves to be the case,I have to say that I'm afraid this whole business will just continue as it has been and for similar reasons.I'd love to be wrong, but...
Hey, Pat!I'm about half-way through Baskin v. Bogan and about all I can say is WOW! Talk about THOROUGH! Whoever wrote this did his or her homework in spades! Again, thanks for posting that!
