Actions speak louder than words

Outgoing Republican lawmakers turned down Pelosi's offer to extend two month severance pay to laid off GOP staffers
. This is customary in the Senate and Nancy graciously offered the House staff the same benefit.

Were the Republicans afraid that the Democratic Party would get too much credit for their largesse or do they simply not care about the working man -- not even the ones that work for them personally? I suspect it's both.

Well, at least they are "outgoing" GOP leadership! We can all be grateful for that.

Libby, you've had a great year blogging. You should be proud of yourself. Certainly I've gained a lot from you, here and elsewhere.

Happy Holidays to you and yours. We wish you a happy, healthy and propserous 2007.

Good to see you Kathy. I get concerned when you're not blogging. A joyous holiday season to you and yours as well.

Lester, I'm glad you dropped by today so I could also wish you the same and all the best in the new year to you both.
