  2. Thanks CC; I was about to say the same thing. Atlanta is definitely not Augusta or vice versa. This is terrible news though.

  3. Log cabins. Log cabins! Make Enda somehow pass the house next.

    But if it can be done this time around, it will be done by log cabin republicans and their allies.

    Log cabins, you've got WORK! Please :--) seriously. THIS would win huge respect for the log cabin brand. I'm cheating for you, log cabins!!
