I hate these Academy Award Sundays in February! My wife who
loves movies, reads People Magazine and all those rags at the
check-out stand of the super market and really cares about "Brangolina",
whoever that is, will force me under penalty of messy divorce
to watch the twelve hour or so show while;
All the ultra rich stars who spend fortunes on tax experts to
reduce their own taxes will use every excuse to rail against
George W. Bush and all people above working class income levels
for not raising taxes to increase welfare benefits and government
