For poorly informed me and other "homebodies," please have your expert political columnists explain the meaning of the "Government's Alphabet Soup Doings" — NAFTA, CAFTA, WTO, GAO, TREAT, CFR, PNTR, FTA, VAT, H-1B, SPP, NACC, NASCO and also SKIL Bill, SmartPort, globalism, outsourcing, insourcing, totalization and any I may have missed.

Perhaps two a week would help us to better understand.
