every TH regular ought to be able to recognize Ancel's newest pseudonym,flag it and pass it by,WITHOUT commenting and giving the troll the attention it so desperately seeks. it sure does NOT help when TH regulars who should know better keep on adding 3 or more krap posts to EACH krap post of sybil's, HELPING it clog up the comments. Useful idiots. They just can't resist showing how "smart" they are with their "witty" replies. All the while sybil is laughing at them,seeing how they help it clog up TH,how effective it's krap posts are....with their help.

THANKSGIVING IS behind us. The fiscal "cliff" looms ahead. And in less than six weeks, Massachusetts will have a new senator. Let's try to link them all in a single column.

As a candidate for the US Senate, Elizabeth Warren showed a livelier interest in raising federal revenues than in cutting government spending. But about one spending target the senator-elect has been admirably blunt. When asked to name some items in the federal budget she'd like to see slashed, the first program she cites is one of the most indefensible: agriculture subsidies.

To be sure, it's easier to oppose welfare...
