Since sometime last evening, I've not been able to comment on the blog, and probably you can't either. I know Caroline is in the same boat. It is either one of those wonderful Blogger $(@#&^$% - ups, or it might be because Seven said "WTF" in my comments! At any rate, since I can post but not comment, I'm going to put my reply to Seven here, and then just wait till later today to see what is going on. Actually, Caroline says that others in the Blogger help group are having trouble, too, but I just think it is fun to blame it on Seven!! LOL!

A city council member in Albuquerque, N.M., introduced a resolution a few years ago to ban Santa Claus from the city. The matter was defeated.
But this one! This is what REALLY brought Clinton down:

Most of these came from Dribbleglass.com.
