Newscaster on TeeWee: "Some air travelers are upset by the idea of airlines charging an extra fee for carry-on bags. After the break we'll hear what one Washington lawmaker plans to do about it..."
Me: "Jesus H. Christ on a turbocharged crutch!"
RX: "It's like living in an Ayn Rand novel, isn't it?"
Seriously, tell me how that is any of the federal government's business? It's getting to the point that whenever little Suzy stubs a toe in Dubuque, within a week we've got some dollar-sucking vote whore clamoring for "Suzy's Law" in Washington, DC. I've got news for you: Every skinned knee in life doesn't need to have its boo-boo kissed by Auntie Congress.
The lawmaker in question, BTW, turned out to be none other than everybody's favorite regulatory busybody, Chuckie Schumer. Just seeing that sanctimonious weasel grin on the TeeWee first thing in the morning makes me suddenly understand Elvis just a little bit better. I'm going to go into business selling armored glass TV screen covers.
