I use Gawd instead of the name of the Diety. (Insert face with eyes raised to heaven in gaze pleading forgivness.) You are correct about gadzooks. Gawd zooks is my made up phrase allowing me to flirt with the profane (as opposite to profanity.) I am tired, did that make sense. Regarding AHIP it is acronym for "Age Hath Its Privilege" I wondered who'd be first to ask. I used AHIP because I ran over 250 characters. WOW
PS Now, have you all figured out my signature -- you are all such clever folk, I mean it, not being snide. If not let us rub our hands and gurgle in glee awaiting the brave soul who'll ask.

I was going to guess woman of wonder (as opposed to wonder woman ;)

Jazz:

Note what I said about a second-rate state :)

As to control of the Senate: If you can see Democrats and Republicans meeting at the center of the aisle to vote without party affiliation for the chairs of the standing Senate committees, I'd like to have some of whatever it is you're smoking. This election has polarized the country to the extent that bipartisanship isn't even going to be spoken about, let alone practiced.

And McCain, whom I would have voted for because of his outstanding moral qualities, is so far right of center he makes Attila the Hun seem moderate.

Party will out, Jazz. I don't say I like it, but the VP will rule in DC for a while.

Interestingly enough, the new Senate takes over January 4. Al Gore will be President of the Senate until noon on January 20. For 15 days the majority (fifty plus the Veep's tie-breaker) will be Democratic, but thereafter, as things stand now, Dick Cheney will be casting the deciding vote. My prediction anyway.

Do we like Mr. Ventura?

could combine it with Nov. 5, which also commemorates a notable political action failure

Good idea, Bob - although as far as the King was concerned it was a very successful political action, I believe..

In reply to:

Is there some reason we shouldn't use more than 250 characters? I'm sure this particular barrier has been breached here on more than one occasion.
