#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.

Obama will veto it, and the legislature will fail to override the veto. Count on it.

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.

    Flopped for about 20 min, had some ibuprofen and a shower; now I feel halfway functional. At least enough to eat dinner. Typing no longer hurts. This…

    I spent the last four and a half hours--with about a 20-minute respite--in motion. Pool is up. It's leaking, but I'm pretty sure I know where…
