Don’t those buzzwords just jump off the sceen?  “Ideal candidate…friendly but assertive…parties…principals only”!

I’m not sure why the “ideal candidate” can’t live, say, 6 miles away.  Whatever.

President Obama has spoken of “green shoots” in the economy.  Who knew they’re sprouting through the Saugatuck Rowing Club parking lot?
