The silverware did kind of suck, but the compostable plates, cups, and other containers were much better than the styrofoam stuff. The styrofoam is really scratchy and makes all sorts of noise, not to mention the fact that putting hot food in styrofoam is not good for general health. Also, it's not recyclable in a lot of places including DC (I believe). Even people in my office prefer the compostable containers. I wish everything didn't have to be so retardedly partisan, and that the GOP could show just a little love for the environment.

and yes, we could sit around all day pointing out each side's respective lame activities (i.e. Obama's March Madness picks for instance).

Preemptive Yawn

I think I would have passed on the televised presidential brackets this year. With catastrophe in Japan, the crushing of rebels in Libya, and the government lurching toward shut down, seems a tad inappropriate. Just saying.
