Because the old one was getting too big. 1) McAfee caught in Guatemala. 2) Speaking of Guatemala, Mayapocalypse point and counterpoint. 3) “Stop lecturing the rest of us and, dammit, get to fking.”

Convention Season Grill 459

We were due for a new grill, and Krugman wanted to be ripped-off in his entirety. I get the essence. The GOP campaign is based on five main themes, three negative and two positive.
