    Snoopy’s insurer—The Charlie Brown Insurance Company.

    It does. I used to sell appliances. One of the benefits I used to point out to people who were looking at refrigerators was that the ice maker was useful beyond just providing ice to cool drinks. You can water plants (both indoor and outdoor) by putting ice cubes on top of the roots. by the time the ice cube melts, the water is just the right temperature for waterring.

    I eagerly await the day when one of these “singers” gets a big shock from putting the microphone in his mouth.

    You and your fellow Republicans DO realize that the “47%” includes people who spent four or five decades working and are now retired on Social Security?

    Republicans count on it. Their whole strategy for the past six or seven decades has been based on identifying an “other” to blame things on so they can “divide and conquer.”

    No, because Echo isn’t recklessly sliding several feet to the right of the bag.

    If we privatize the post office, it very well might take 11 stamps to send a less than one ounce, first class letter to Idaho.

    Differential postal rates would be one of the biggest problems with that scheme. But I’m sure private industry would LOVE to get its hands on all those revenues.

    A consumer advocate from our state government was on the news the other day and said that there is a growing probnlem with the phony IRS scam. Scammers call and say that the “mark” owes money to the IRS. They tell you that you’re going to be forced to appear before a “magistrate judge” (a magistrate is a local level hearings officer who would never be involved with an IRS case because IRS is a federal agency) unless you pay the “amount owed” by giving them you’re credit card number or bank account number.

    Apparently, there has been an increase in the number of people falling for this in our state.

    How did her glasses end up completely on the left side of her nose? I can’t make mine do that.

    I don’t know if it’s still the case, but a few years ago when I worked on some textbooks, books were tailored to the Texas and California markets. It was both because of their size and the fact that both have (or at least HAD) uniform textbook adoption rules. Under such rules, schools throughout the state are automatically authorized (more like required) to use the book adopted by the state commission.
