    I'm unusually PO'd about things:

    Jeers to my right-wing friend who sent the following in her holiday letter:

    A surprise to us were the 30 some locks on the upper Mississippi and how much barge traffic travels on the rivers that feed the Mississippi. One tugboat pushing 18 barges to New Orleans carry as much grain as a freight train of 225 cars-One transportation that the government didn’t build).
    Huh? Who builds all the locks and dams? The lock-and-dam fairy?

    Jeers to our resident asshole at our summer camp. He wasted 26 minutes and 33 seconds of my life (I know, my phone showed the elapsed time) complaining to me about something about which I neither want nor have the ability to do anything.

    OK, cheers to Barney Frank, my Congressman for 25 years.

    Cheers to Elizabeth Warren, my new Senator. I loved her quote yesterday that she though AIG had a lot of gall to complain about the bailout. Only I though I heard her say "balls" instead of "gall."
