Sound Familiar?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." -- Cicero - 55 BC

...fiddling while Rome burns.....

my fingers are crossed with this new guy, and-- off-topic but still-- hopes he tries out a poodle. hypo-allergenic. rather smart. cool dogs. couldn't hurt.
