I Come Bearing Presents

Thought I was gone for good, eh? Not so fast. While elsewhere in cyberspace, I found THE coolest tool for digging-up dirt on Congresspersons… and the people who contribute to ’em… I mean, uh, love ’em. The site’s Influence Explorer, but you’ll need the magic word to log-in. Man, are you soooo gonna waste the afternoon now!

    A real gift would be 20-30 posts on the thread that must not be named, (at least until we officially name it the thread of dreams).

    It is, after all, for the children.
