      No problem.

      Yes, whatever we will do with the tearful Madam? We best do as she says and “curb” our “enthusiasm” After all, it might lead to a murder. It’s fortunate that she doesn’t have such worries when it comes to her statist/leftist brethren. But…wait a moment…as I pointed out on my own blog….since the dear old Madam brought up Harvey Milk (and by default, Mayor Moscone), I felt it prudent to point out something she neglected:
