When I was in my mid-20s, I was visiting upstate New York and went to a bar there. A not-attractive older man started chatting me up. I was giving him the cold shoulder when suddenly he asked, out of the blue, "Do you charge?" I immediately made a beeline to the other side of the bar.

"625 King County residents were killed by gun violence ... 460 were self-inflicted."

So 165 people were killed by gun violence, and suicide is a much bigger problem. Maybe we should make suicide illegal?

I think it is hilarious that a small amount of spending restraint and some tax increases that still don't cover the spending, is being referred to as 'austerity'. When monks live an austere lifestyle, they don't go out and buy everything they can afford plus more. They restrict themselves to just what they need. The chance of the government doing anything close to that is about 0%. The correct term for what we are facing with the fiscal cliff is 'less irresponsibility'. Not that we'll get even that.
