The decision of the judge is final. Bob, tell us what she's won.

That's right. Purron is now the proud owner of Johnson and Johnson's Bundle-o-Kittens



And she'll be taking them on an all-expenses-paid one-week vacation to the Cleveland cat hotel.

I'm so thrilled to receive this honor! I'd like to thank DH, my mom, the USA and everyone here at e-r.org

The House is voting right now...and it passed.

On to the Senate.

It's getting close to being a done deal.

No, it is a done deal. The senate wasn't the worry, it was the house.

Not sure any of us will be really happy about this bill but think most will be relieved this is over for now. Lots of opportunities of us and our elected representatives to work on our fiscal problems in the future. Hopefully we've learned from this painful process and will make things better. And how about that Gabby showing up to vote? To me, and hopefully others join me in this regard, I found this inspirational.

Looks like you may have made a good call. I hope you bought the puts for that.
