    I imagine half of you are pressing your white sheets, although I'm pretty sure Schmoopy's is paisley print.

    Working. Contractors don't get holidays. If they do, they're unpaid. :sad:

    We are too big: we would close today even if all our employees were Jews: there would be too much resulting bad press, and I'm pretty sure we already pay Rev Al too much in hush money.

    I'm having a 3rd cup of festivus coffee from some place called booskerdoo in Jersey. Later today I will meet with my other transplanted yankee friends in downtown Atlanta and toast the memories of MLK and William Tecumseh Sherman. God bless America

    I'm following Obama's instructions to volunteer: I am offering to help console this poor unfortunate woman of color who has been oppressed by the white men in media who cancelled her TV show.
