The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Chris Dodd Fading to the Horizon?

Per this AM's Wash Post web site, Senator Chris Dodd is planning on retiring, rather than running for another term in the US Senate.  See this link:  Conn. Senator Dodd to announce retirement.
Embattled Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.) has scheduled a news conference for Wednesday at which he is expected to announce he will not seek reelection, sources familiar with his plans said Tuesday night.
If he does announce he is going over the side we can expect sorrow on Wall Street.  For sure Countrywide Financial will miss him.  Me, not so much.

Two-part question for you: Is 2010going to be the next 1994? And if you were a betting man, do you think the GOP will gain any ground back in New England?

Not sure if you saw David Brooks' piece this week about the tea party movement, but the numbers behind it suggest a TON of discontent with what's going on right now in DC.

One wonders about the motivation behind the fade. Could it be that he prefers to return to "other pursuits" rather than face Federal corruption charges as a US Senator?
Perhaps a nice deal has been struck. His is not the only Dem death on the horizon either......seems to be a trend developing.

Tea party discontent can be positive only if we abandon the politicals of party and instead elect representation that truly represents.

Time will tell....
