I know you haven't posted since March and you're probably completely moved on, but I just wanted to give one last parting shot: you were right and I was wrong. This administration is totally fucked, and it's the HAWK in me that says this knucklehead needs to be demoted to the rank of Crawford's Village Idiot before more people drown from his negligence.

If you read this, PLEASE COME BACK. America's levee is about to break and you-know-who is still "in charge"!
