4. I feel the same way about Al Franken's leaving the Senate, his insight and knowledge was irreplaceable

But I know why he did, he's a member of Alanon, which he joined to support his wife, and not offending others is one of their principles. But I also wish he'd fought back, especially since many who jumped on the bandwagon calling for his resignation have now regretted it.

When he came to my area as part of his national tour, many in the sold out audience called for him to run again - but now he's back in New York and nobody's retiring from the Senate here anytime soon. I'd vote for him over just about anyone. *sigh*

As for his comedy, having started on network TV, it's pretty "G" rated - and it certainly was when I went to his performance in Albany.
