Rising from dust

We've all seen "Wash me" on the back of semi trailers and car windows. Workers at loading docks sometimes write messages on dirty trailer doors, neighbors post subtle messages to messy neighbors.

Inspection- You're Lying

Michael Moore recently wrote an essay claiming America isn't broke. The rich have our money. Why, yes, they do. But we don't even have to go there.

"The governor is largely doing what he said he'd do: Fix the budget mess without raising taxes or resorting to raids and tricks" What!!!!

Are higher gas prices because of Libya

Are higher gas prices because of Libya, or because of wild oil speculation?
