How’s the stimulus working for you so far?

by Neal Boortz at Townhall.com

Well now. Our economy is really lunging forward, isn’t it? What a ride! Are you holding on?

In the letter, the scientists cited a letter sent by the Woods Hole Research Center, which exhorted Congress to act quickly to avoid a global disaster due to alleged global warming.
