THE $30,000 LAMB CHOPS
There was nearly balloon-boy-level coverage of a $30,400-a-couple DNC fundraiser that was to be held in New York last night headlined by the President (followed by a much larger, less reported-on $100-and-up fundraiser / health-reform rally). Both went off beautifully, with thousands in attendance overall, and I can’t wait for the transcript of the President’s remarks to be released – and I hope the video – so I can post them here (probably tomorrow) for you to make your own judgment. Boy, are we ever fortunate to have this guy. I know we’re out of practice, but it’s really okay not to be cynical.

At $12,000, you may want to wait until Best Buy begins discounting the Enertia. But you can watch a coupla dudes driving these silent hogs* from Detroit to the White House and follow their progress here.

Quote of the Day
In 1800, 75% of [an American's] working man's expenditures went for food alone. By 1850, that had dropped to 50%. Today it is a little more than 11%.~The Wall Street Journal, September 20, 1996
