Melodrama is sometimes rather irresistible. Yeah, I got sucked in from time to time. But OH MY GOD. Can we kind of refocus a bit? I mean it isn't as if reform in NY State is up for grabs in ONE WEEK!!

This will be short, and I'm surprised I couldn't find this here (maybe I missed it). If so, it's good news and perhaps worth repeating. But some news out of the Houston Chronicle shows polling ...
