70. I always watch "60 Minutes"
Sometimes I'm amused, sometimes I'm edjimacated, sometimes I'm enraged. Tonight I was just -- WTF??

I am simply not comfortable with a guy who is so psychologically labile, and is 3rd in line for the Presidency. Someone in that position should have a better grasp on his emotions than to be falling apart at the thought that a kid in the 3rd grade may not have then same opportunities that HE had when HE was growing up. I'm sorry, I'm an emotional person myself, I sob when I see SPCA ads with sad puppies and kitties on TV, and the commercials with skinny kids overseas also (and I rush to donate to most of those as well) -- BUT. . . the Speaker of the House, I think, could have a little more self-possession.
