Perfect idea and excesscution! I heard the cost is up to 1-2 trillion- not to mention the loss of respect and the main cost- lives.

Yes, the powers that be believe the streets of DC are paved with gold and lined with those special trees. An excessive loss of life, too. There is an excess of many things in our country's administration... but a deficit of many other things. Sigh.

Hey, Carl is a cool cat, and he's got a great name.
