It is a story that has fallen through the cracks with the coverage of Freedom to Work recently passed here in Michigan and the so-called "fiscal cliff" (which really isn't as much of as issue as the republican kakistocracy would like you to believe it is...provided they remember they still control the House and grow a spine). Don't dig any deeper. This is what is taking up most of the 22-minutes of air time the MSM wants you to pay attention to each day.
Well that, and Lindsay Lohan's most recent troubles with the law.
Got to stay focused on the paparazzi.
Actually, this one is a little more disconcerting.

Charley Reese is a retired syndicated columnist (via King Features) who worked for the Orlando Sentinel from 1971 to 2001. On March 7, 1985, he wrote a column entitled, "Looking For Someone To Blame? Congress Is A Good Place To Start." This was a slightly updated version of his "Just 546 people to blame for U.S. errors," which was published on July 17, 1983, in the Elyria, Ohio, Chronicle-Telegram. The column has been republished multiple times since then (notably in 1995 and in 2008), always with minor updating, and usually under the title "The 545 People Responsible for America's Woes," but with no change to the core point.
What follows is my best effort to effectively blend the most widely circulated versions of the original article; I only hope that I do justice to the original work.
