Poor you - how will you get through your day. (what is it with all these expectations people have on these quizzes? It seems to be all about them rather than a little bit of enjoyment and challenge).

So true, except for those occasions when someone comments "you should have included persons x and y" and the Quizmaster answers "great idea, I've added them!" So a little whining now and then can occasionally pay off.

You should have been hearing about the Senator quite a bit recently. He is the one that made the mistake of taking a picture abusing a fellow volunteer during a USO tour. In spite of his valiant efforts, he has aborted his political future since sexual harassment is not swept under the rug anymore for the rich and powerful. Too bad Franken forgot to burn the photograph while he could. Good riddance to bad trash. How many more women need to accuse him of horrible treatment before he is shamed from public life? I do not know what the accusation count is up to, but has been growing steadily.
