Leavitt Requests Meeting with Dead Senator
The office of Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt called Sen. Craig Thomas's (R-WY) office Thursday afternoon to request a meeting with the late senator, the Washington Post reports.

Thomas passed away on Monday after a seven month battle with leukemia.

"Needless to say, grief-stricken Thomas staffers were stunned."

This was, however, pretty big news in D.C. with plenty of speculation as to his replacement.

Here's a fricken tissue. How does this crap make the news and other important stories are completely ignored.

Sounds about right. A couple of other Senators have been actively in office and look like warmed-over death.

I figure any day that I don't find my name in the obituaries/death notices is going to be a pretty good day.

Mike probably wanted to ask him how he was feeling ... ;)

Fortunately, I don't live in D.C. anymore. That inside-the-beltway we're-the-center-of-the-known-universe stuff got real old, real fast.

Glockman, You should be sorry. Don't you know you are not to make jokes or have a good time while here. There are too many here without a sense of humor and are quick to flame. Sorry if I offended anyone, sorry if my spelling and grammer are not correct, sorry sorry sorry. (One sure has to say "sorry" alot here I've noticed.) Oh darn, forgot to be sorry about punctuation. sorry

The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits. Albert Einstein

I believe that the only things infinite are time and stupidity....and I am not sure if time is truly infinite.
