  1. Pretty stupid decision… sounds Republican. When the great solar storm of 2013 hits–and all yer fancy iPods and laptops and do-dads and gadgets are turned into non-absorbent coasters…and no one can type because all the cast iron Underwoods have been sent to China to be melted down to make their high-speed trains—we’ll see then who wants to admit to deciding to make us all print our next Declaration of Independence in block letters.

  2. This is deeply embarrassing. The national descent into institutionalized sloth seems to mirror the caving into gluttony. I weep for America.

  3. I really like what you guys tend to be up too. This type of
    clever work and reporting! Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve added you guys to my own blogroll.
