What is a Babka?
By Perry Willis
Today's Downsizer-Dispatch . . . What is a Babka? Is it really a Czechoslovakian sweet bread, as claimed in an episode of "Seinfeld," or is it the President of, as we've so often claimed here in the Downsizer-Dispatch? Soon you'll have a chance to answer this question for yourself. Jim Babka will be appearing with John Stossel and a host of other luminaries, and/or sweet breads, at the upcoming conference of the Free State Project in New Hampshire. You can get the details here, and register to attend. Use the code DOWNDC and you'll get 5% off your registration fee. Babka will get extra sweet bread brownie points if some of you actually do so. So do so. Pretty please. In other news, more than 2,300 messages were sent to Congress yesterday asking them to go slow on Speaker Pelosi's plan for a 100-hour legislative orgy. That's a good initial response, so apparently our fear that the subject line "No orgy!" would run afoul of spam filters was unwarranted. Would the results have been different if the subject line had been "Yes orgy!" There's still time to join in on our anti-orgy-orgy by sending your own "No orgy" message to Congress. Click here to do so. INSIDE INFO: Babka complained to me yesterday about the overuse of the word orgy (suggesting "blitz" for word-variation purposes.) As you can see, I've corrected the orgy of orgy use in today's message. Yes, we're getting a little punchy as Christmas rushes toward us like an out of control orgy. It's been a long year. We maintain this view despite official government claims that 2006 contained just 365 days. We caution you, as always, to distrust official government pronouncements. But you can believe US when we pronounce that we're only $5,400 shy of meeting our December fundraising target. Beat the last minute rush and make your climactic year-end contribution HERE. Thank you for being a DC Downsizer. And all that jazz. Perry Willis Communications Director, Inc.
