When Nixon resigned I was living in Massachusetts and proudly placed a bumper sticker on my car that expressed the title of ths blog entry because Massachusetts was the ONLY state that did not vote for Richard Nixon.

Today's bumper sticker for Wisconsoners should read as follows:

Colson n' Newt for Walker: Heaven Help The Republic(ans) & US!

The World Bank has issued their third report of climate change, and it says that global temperatures could rise by as much as 4 degrees Celsius by the time today's teens hit their 80th birthday.
