Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be very clear on my child's illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This photo is of me selling a shovel!

My former Congressman, Mike Doyle, sponsored the bipartisan House Resolution 110 congratulating the NFL champion Pittsburgh Steelers for winning the Super Bowl. Heath Shuler was among the co-sponsors. Not surprisingly, there were no Members of Congress from Arizona on the co-sponsor list.

Ric Blas, my favorite Olympian, will be featured in March’s Esquire magazine.

Regular reader tiny350z has a fairly new blog titled Cheese People. Check it out especially if you like to reading Metro stories.

Finally, in honor of Valentine’s Day, here's your moment of zen:
