Each week I look forward to Zach's weekly post of names that no one should ever name their offspring.
It turns out this week I have the privilege/horror (depending on your POV) of being in Ruston on business.

The case is more funny than anything and shows how idiotic bureaucracies can be. But I am taking over/unders on how long before he gets audited.

If the GOP wants to take the Senate it has to keep the seats it has.
And in Kansas, this was thought to be assured. Roberts is a 17-year member having never had a serious challenge. Even though he was facing two opponents (Democrat Chad Taylor and independent Greg Orman) he was thought to have ...

Apparently labor unions have to report lobbying and political expenditures to two different federal agencies: the IRS (under Form 990) and the Department of Labor (under its Form LM-2).
