    You should tell them how long is too long to leave that clip on. People would be leaving it on all day trying to calm hyper kittens.

      BC,Get with the program and become assimilated, will ya? Up. Up! Everything is moving upward because B.O. has brought us “Hope.” No lowercase “h”s for him. Nosiree Bob. Debt doesn’t matter. Loss of manufacturing doesn’t matter. Alt-A does not matter. Hope, is all that matters.So, roll another one. Just like the other one. You’ve been holding onto it, and we sure would like a hit of Hopium.
