Addicted to oleaginous politicians, if you ask me

When you've finished your morning coffee, read the paper, driven to work, smoked your ciggie, checked your e-mail, and every other mindless habit you can't do without, read this.

Reminds me of how pusher Louie taunts addict Frankie Machine in The Man with the Golden Arm by Nelson Algren (read the book first, if you can; the movie is also very good, but it cheats at the end).

My gosh, you're an Algren fan, too! Nobody remembers him, I can't imagine why.

Love that rummy dog.
