I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran said. “I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.”
Members of Congress make $174,000 per year currently.
Moran added: “Our pay has been frozen for three years and we’re planning on freezing it a fourth year. … A lot of members can’t even afford to live decently in Washington.

Congressman: Members of Congress are underpaid
So glad this assbag is retiring.
The U.S. median income in 2012 was about $51,000. In Washington D.C., it was about $67,000, and for the D.C. metro area it was about $88,000, the highest of any metro area in the U.S.. So by any measure, members of Congress are really, really well paid, making 3.4, 2.6, and 2 times those median incomes, respectively.
Which is the long way of saying: Shut the fuck up, Jim Moran.
I got to play with some of my office’s toys today for a video shoot. Thus, I present my masterpiece:

Date-Time tune for 04/03
Seems appropriate, even if the forecast says it might not be true.
I didn’t think anything could get me to like/respect post “Dazed and Confused” Matthew McConaughey. Boy was I wrong.
Two episodes left.
NB: Both “binging” and “bingeing” are correct. Both look strange.

Far too many good songs for me to pick one for the 04/01 Date-Time Tune.
