Someone's Making Some Sense

Here’s someone who’s actually making some sense:

Asked about the desirability of distancing oneself from George W. Bush, (Tom) Cole (Republican Congressman from Oklahoma) told The Washington Post that "it's not for me to second-guess the president of the United States."

Yes, it is. That is precisely the constitutional obligation of a member of Congress – to second-guess, challenge, question, and, when necessary, serve as a check on a president.

- Mickey Edwards, former Republican Congressman from Oklahoma

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
