An open letter to Rep. Courtney and Sens. Blumenthal and Murphy:

Gentlemen, I want to offer my gratitude for supporting the Affordable Care Act. Since its inception my premium has gone from $600 per month to $1,400. This give new meaning to affordable. Of course, according to our president, this makes me part of the 5 percent and thus I do not matter.

I understand that some must sacrifice for the greater good. Of course, like all good socialists, you have the superior intellect and ability to run my wretched life and that is why you and the president have exempted yourselves from Obamacare. Those at the top know better and deserve better.

I only hope you run our health care in same efficient manner as the Post Office and I can expect the same great service as from the Department of Motor Vehicles. And just look at the fiscal health of Social Security.

I am sure you have the ability to make health decisions for me. Don't lawyers know medicine better than doctors? This gives me great confidence in you.

Again, thanks to you and the support of the unbiased press, I am better off now that you will make decisions for me.

Your humble servant.

As our children crash from Halloween candy overload, we look ahead to the next big holiday: Thanksgiving. What are you looking forward to seeing on your dining room table on the 4th Thursday of November?
Cranberry sauce: Whether it's the home made stuff containing actual cranberries or the reddish jelly shaped like the can it plopped out of, it reminds me of childhood.
Turkey, of course: Turkey slathered in gravy. Turkey with cranberry sauce (see above). Turkey with mashed potatoes on it. Turkey in sandwiches the next day. All I care about is the golden bird.
Latkes: For the first time in 125 years, Thanksgiving falls during Hanukkah so our table will be filled with the best food both holidays have to offer. Happy Thanksgivikkah!
My Thanksgiving has been completely taken over by the ever-earlier Black Friday sales. My big meal will be looking more like a fast food burger in line outside of Best Buy than the traditional sit-down meals from days of ole.
