Your'e in a lot of my stuff actually. It's your James Cagney voice. I love it.

Not a good story - it was topical for one day then past it's best buy date. Wonder why it's just popped up now? Oh well, another one for my good friend Eddie to critique.

1 star? I reckon.

While the main character did the slipping, it appears that his under-secretary becomes "the fall guy."

Thank you for your witty political observations, prior comments from others to the contrary.

While you hope that your Doctor has A's rather than C's or D's, you have the opposite wish of your Hooter's waitress.
