While we dangle over the fiscal cliff, Harry Reid rearranges the deck chairs on the SS Postal Service.
Reid’s chamber did find time Thursday evening to conduct other, more mundane business – specifically, naming seven post offices and a section of the Internal Revenue Code.
The University of Chicago will soon demolish Ronald Reagan’s boyhood home. To make way for a parking lot.
The building the Reagans lived in is about to be demolished. The land now belongs to the University of Chicago’s Medical Center and the plan is to replace it with a grassy strip bordering what will be a new parking lot.
The Commission on Chicago Landmarks turned down an appeal to give the building landmark status on the grounds that it “does not have sufficient architectural significance” and “is not associated with Mr. Reagan during his active and productive years.”
The parking is for … wait for it … a Barack Obama Presidential Library.

Obama Warns Congress: “I’ve Been Keeping My Own Naughty And Nice List”
“Joe Biden was in Costco and he wanted to buy some of this stuff, but I told him he had too much work to do. I wasn’t going to have him building roller coasters all day long. Now, of course, Santa delivers everywhere. I’ve been keeping my own naughty and nice list for Washington, so you should keep your eye on who gets some K’NEX this year. There are going to be some members of Congress who get them, and some who don’t,” President Obama said Friday at a rally where he pushed Congress to avoid the fiscal cliff.
Our country is in the very best of hands.
