I have a lot of stuff I need to write. I am very tired and my wrists hurt. I don't think I'll write them now. But I'm going to this week. I'm on an odyssey right now, and it's got a lot of small parts and pieces I need to pull together in a coherent tale.
Waxman's Global warming legislation. Includes the following, emphasis added: "Clean Air Act Exemptions. The draft provides that CO2 and other greenhouse gases may not be regulated as criteria pollutants or hazardous air pollutants on the basis of their effect on global warming."
The following statement: "Because starting today, the United States government will stand behind your warranty." (if it hadn't been for my horse, I would never have spent that year in college)
Neal Wolin has been nominated for Geithner's number two post at Treasury (currently he's Deputy Secretary-designate). You don't know who Neal Wolin is, but he helped write the drafts of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley act. You may remember the Gramm Leach Bliley Act from such deregulation nightmares as THIS CURRENT RECESSION.
