    Why keep giving the arrogant Brian David Mitchell all the attention he desires?

    Curmudgeon, like you, I am not impressed with our setting Congress. However, as much as I distrust Hatch, I do allow him his down time. He needs it as much as anyone. So let him compose.

    Regarding Stewart's, while he certainly has the cred's do write this memoir, I do wonder if he is not taking advantage for his own political game. Doing this will certainly keep his name in the media.

    I thought the Smart Family wanted to move on with their lives? It finally should be obvious to all that they really don't. Rather, they clearly want to milk this for every penny they can. Thus, the periodic press releases issued by an eager and willing press to ensure the family retains maximum exposure.

    As I've said before, just like Lamb-Chop, "This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it, not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because...This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friend..."

    I suggest that we all ignore these publicity efforts, which will help this family truly move on with their lives.

    I hope Congressman-elect Stewart finishes the memoir before January, so he can turn his full attention to the people's business once he's sworn in. Of course, it doesn't take much time or effort to obstruct the Obama agenda, so maybe Stewart can multi-task. He could follow the example of Orrin Hatch, who apparently has time to compose songs while "serving" as senator. The question is, who are they really "serving"?
