Just So You Know Where Your Lawmakers Are...
Michael Jackson is so important to those in the halls of Congress

From Politico.com; Apparently so many House staffers are watching the MJ memorial on their computers that...

The Committee on House Administration's House Technology Director sent out the following email message to House staffers:

"Just as an fyi the internet is slow as a result of the MJ Memorial Service. A notice will soon be posted on Housenet."
Another staffer tells Shenan that everyone in Cannon is watching the memorial. "All the offices have closed their doors" and "literally the halls are empty." Plus, there was a sighting of a teary-eyed intern. "Thank God we have late votes today," added the staffer, "I would body-check anyone who tried to change the channel to CSPAN right now."

Actually, I think we're safer with our lawmakers watching the Michael Jackson memorial than with them making laws.

May that troubled "young" man rest in peace. That said, I only watched about 10 minutes of the memorial, that paean to idolatry. Unfortunately, that unfortunate man's death eclipsed the deaths of Farah Fawcett Majors, Ed McMahon, and Karl Malden, the latter whom I particularly admired. These people at least deserved to be remembered with just a little more than a "oh by the way . . . ."
