The open bars at some delegate-friendly hotels start serving Bloody Marys at 10:30 a.m., and the Dems can hardly sneeze without stumbling on a free shuttle, water bottle, or bike.

Those biz class upgrade chits he sold me were totally bogus and all I could use them for was to get a free set of earphones and one lager. ... More >>
06.06.07 London Heathrow Airport Chief, A damn good thing you didn't send along that wire-transfer, because the German attorney turned out to be a total fraud. I would also say that The Professor is a long, long way from the friendly confines of academia. I should have known he was slipping when h ... More >>
