  1. I guess I missed it. I was focusing on that ashtray on the table and the quantity of cigarettes consumed with my tax dollars. Explain to me exactly why these folks are "disabled?" Their day consists of alternating movement between the television that my tax dollars pay for, the laptop (that my tax dollars pay for) and the smoking couch. Sorry, these folks are poster children for the problem.

  2. I apologize, my post was not typed in all caps. That's a Sun thing.
