I’d want the tar-and-feather concession stand on the Mall in DC. I’d hate to be living in Hollywood. If I worked for Comcast, I’d not drive the company van home for a while.
Feb 17, 2009 is conveniently after the current administration has formatted all their hard drives, shredded all the papers and painted-over the crayon drawings on the walls of the White House. I’m just sayin’.
