    who had studied at the knee of the U.of Chicago philosopher-kings, or a reverential reader of The Weekly Standard, or, even, an attende of the Limbaugh/Fox nursery school, instead of being one of the expendable plebs "on the ground", the Big Picture would alot more meaning to the poor benighted one, no doubt.

    it's so hard to find good help these days.
