Should have been directed towards the Brit reporters, and edited to read “Drinkers of Tempestuous Tea”.

In fact, I tries to co-opt the real message, which is that these committees were working on substantive and urgent issues in a time which is very “short on time”, while Mr. Brown actually was given reasonably good care and attention. One would think a serious snub had occurred, where the story shows none!

Gives me an urge to launch an “ad hominem” at the reporter, like, snide jerk!!

This is not the time to spend taxpayer money for “fanfare.”

“at least four Senate committees plowed ahead with their hearings on a wide variety of subjects.”

Good.. that’s what we’re paying them for!
