No thanks.

However, I would love to see the pics from the Otter Meet.

Which means it would fit right in with lots of the other videos they are forced to watch.

We need to take a break so Pharoh and Venusian can watch all five seasons of The Wire.

It's the best TV show of all time.

ETA: and CRM114.

Looks like the series is done and on dvd...which should make it much easier to watch.

I don't think kids need to know the minutiae of the CW that Ken Burns gets into in the series. Sure, if they want to explore it, that's fine. Roots really gave context to slavery that people never bothered to gather.

I will make a point of watching The Wire. After I finish season 4 of Weeds.

I caught the last couple of seasons of The Wire at a friend's house. A lot of characters to keep track of at first but it is a very good series.

Question 3. R: Federalist #51 by James Madison addresses the importance of checks and balances within the system. Name a senator who voted "Yea" on stimulus checks in the Economic Stilumus Act of 2008, whose state budget carried a balance (deficit) of more than $3,000,000,000.00 in the fiscal year that followed?

Re: Poli Sheep 105: Fair & Balanced Vanity Edition, w/ SheepMates and Land Mines

I'll add that scoring this question was a big fat pain in the butt and I considered never asking it. But I felt an obligation to my country.

For reference, here is the chart I will be using to score FY2009.
http://www.cbpp.org/cms/index.cfm?fa=view&id=711


If you believe your answer is correct and I have scored it wrong based on the budget, you will be required to send me a link to a reliable page that shows a deficit greater than 3 billion, posted after the conclusion of FY2009.

Good - I'm back in time for the controversial question.

And when did my user name become Red Rog?
