If John Boehner’s fervent desire is to be on TV all the time, he is wildly successful. Does it matter to him what he is famous for? That he is engaging in bringing down the American economy as part of his mission to bring down Obama? This is the Holy War of the ideologically blind and the morally corrupt, making him a big name for our domestic terror watch list. The irony is that we are watching him all the time.
Jeff Haus is doing a Davy Crockett project. Here’s a page of Davy’s on screen and stage, including a certain red haired ring-tailed roarer out of the Rabbit Ears shop of about 20 years ago. Well, I’ll be a cross-eyed catfish. How many of these can you name? Check it out at http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1937148067511.2106084.1206646015
HOMELESSNESS IN DC
BY CAMERON K. LEWIS
The boy in this image represents merely one of the thousands of people in homeless families in our nation’s capital. When new mayor Vincent Gray took office, he opted to makes cuts to the city’s budget rather than raise taxes, creating a $20.5 million gap in aid for the homeless. With the number of homeless families steadily increasing in recent years, more and more are being turned away and denied shelter. Currently, over 500 families are on the city’s wait list for shelter, leaving them to sleep on the streets, in cars and stairwells.
