My brain is an arid desert, devoid of ideas or inspiration.  At least for the next few hours, until my synapses start firing, you’re on your own!

    At New York City’s main post office, Head Elf Pete Fontana and 22 staff elves will sort 2 million letters in Operation Santa, which connects needy children with “Secret Santas” who answer their wishes.
    Fontana, a customer relations coordinator for the Postal Service, has been head elf for 15 years.
    “The need is greater this year than I’ve ever seen it,” he says. “One little girl didn’t want anything for herself. She wanted a winter coat for her mother.”
    While our representatives are ever so busy inserting ear marks and goodies for cut throat trout, llama farms and their favorite pet projects, you can adopt a needy child. Link in article.

    Congress is making me seriously angry today.  They passed the horrible tax bill in the senate.  It is a pork laden POS.  All we get are the status quo on taxes for two more years while Obama gets to add another trillion to the debt.  One small problem.  According to the Constitution, all spending and tax bills are to originate in the House.  Not that these people care what the Constitution, I was just pointing that out.

    Something to amuse you.

    So, Spartacus, it’s not just your brilliance and erudition I like so much.  It’s your charm too.  Bless you.  I feel better now.
