    Stuff That Happened Recently (Somewhat)
    I've been incredibly busy with term finals and a fifteen-page essay on statistical manipulations in the business environment. I'm just starting to catch-up on American politics and boy, I've missed quite a bit.

    The senate race in Connecticut, a democrat and a republican getting along? I was impressed when I heard the story. These guys called each other up, agreed to forgo the usual cheap attacks and dirty campaigning in favour of a civilized race. Jon Stewart remarked that the fact that we feel it's newsworthy to mention senators getting along sheds light on how sad the political landscape has become.

    Obama's middle-class tax cuts. Why aren't they being implemented and why are the republicans fighting it? Can Joe or Lomotil explain that one to me?
