A sage among the sagebrush...

You people think I'm kidding about Lukas P. Short being on the cutting edge. Here is more proof. He's still raising a big stink about his cowpie idea. He told me he has a new slogan: "Cowpie, it's what's fer cookin' dinner!" It may need some work.

In other news I decided to look up the actual trancript from yesterday's House session. It's worse than I thought. It appears they only spent 5 minutes working yesterday. (Not a joke)
