    I just saw that Mississippi voters have a "Life at Fertilization" movement up for consideration this fall.
    I am astounded that anyone living today could be that backward. Frequently, as someone who escaped Mississippi at the age of eighteen, I am both ashamed that I was born there, and amazed that I could have changed my thinking so completely from that state's cognitive bases of irrationality.

    How many children have you given birth to?

    What Cabinet departments are asking for funding, and are they essential for the good of the people of the United States?

    You know, Mmmmm, I've never eaten a turtle egg.
    I'll try that as soon as I can.
    I prefer omelets, which I make as nearly perfectly as anyone can, to boiled eggs, but I seldom take time to make omelets.
    The secrets are a well seasoned pan, sweet butter, and a concert pianist's wrist.
    My pilgrimage to the Galapagos Islands was one of the spiritual highlights of my life.

    @ Donna:
    Well, funding for Cabinet departments provides a number of jobs for Cabinet members.
    Isn't that good enough?

    It would be enough if one of said members were an unemployed person off the street.
