That doghouse image is AWESOME! Just think what would have happened in the US economy if all those billions of dollars that were given to corporations and CEOs was given, in equal share, to every American.
Comment by Marcus Riedner on 10/23/2008 at 12:23 PM:
hah, that's awesome, the client that never returns calls. I've had a number of them, where it is like sending messages into a black hole.

Still going through your blog and stuff, looks good, you have a great sense of humor.
