    Perhaps he could give Larry a little shove out the door. Doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere right away…..

    creigh released a news blurb saying he is going to stay. good for the repubs.

    There they go again, shooting themselves in the foot…

    Larry’s attitude about the whole thing seems kinda wishy-washy to me.

    “First you say you do
    And then, you don’t
    Then you say you will
    But then, you won’t
    You’re undicided now
    So what are you gonna do?”

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
