#1730: Wow, the House voted to cut off ACORN, too.

Democrats say they don't know about the story but they're voting to cut funding to the President's favorite group. Interesting.

Speaking of cats, Mom found a catnip plant in the back yard, and so my cats got some fresh "bud" today. Now they're happy.
