Bridges, Roller Coasters, & Congress - Frightening Subjects

"There is no distinctly American criminal class - except Congress." - Mark Twain

The link below lists all the U.S. Senators and allows a person to view senator stands on issues and their voting records. Additionally, the senator can be emailed through his/her site. In our state, our senators usually do write us back. The site also lists their phone numbers in case you prefer calling. We encourage you to do something. We have Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House, and Harry Reid, senate majority leader, who are refusing to allow a vote on oil drilling. They are not listening to the demands of their own constituency. Let your senator and house representative know your opinion.

We love this picture. This is a picture of Sandy's son, Paul, and two of his sons, Isaiah (in glasses) and Kobe, while riding a roller coaster at Lego Land. At least Paul was having a good time. We're sure that the looks on Isaiah and Kobe's faces mirror the looks on our faces when we had to drive across bridges during our recent vacation.

Speaking of which, we're starting a new segment today entitled Bridges We Hope To Never Drive On. The bridge we're highlighting today is the Macinack Bridge. It connects Mackinaw, Michigan, to St. Ignace, Michigan. Just looking at this picture makes the color drain from our faces.
Until tomorrow...
