This is VERY good:

From Sacramento

In his former life, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger starred in the action-thriller "Collateral Damage." Last week, he had only a bit role in the collateral damage inflicted by fellow Republicans in the state Senate.

In the flick, victims included his wife and son. In the Senate, they include millions of battered wives, children, home-buyers, taxpayers. . . .

1. So do we have state by state totals of how many the GOP have killed?
Are killing? Will kill?

Shouldn't we start naming the victims, like we did the victims of 9/11, that other terrorist opportunity?

Forgive me. I'm a little upset today because I just found out a friend who has no health insurance has been having, possibly, TIAs. And he's been living without heat or hot water for three months in Buffalo. I AM BESIDE MYSELF. I didn't even know he was out of work. Like everyone else he knows in the newspaper business.

And he's deeply, deeply depressed. Why shouldn't he be? He's alone, he's terrified, he's in goddamn Buffalo and he's allergic to my cat or I would have had him start packing ten hours ago.
