    I’m not sure where the “Whipple Clips” are today, maybe on Santa’s sleigh en route to Arlington. 🙂  Anyway, while Rudolph et al are getting ready, here are a few stories I found interesting this morning:

      Couples split apart all year around; it is interesting the number of public figures who split before the Solstice Holidays.  

      Also, this is my own view, never marry a politician, you are not her first love.  There are a few who make it work, the Clinton’s for example, by being on their own. Their fights must have been the clashes mortals can only dream of!

      “We’re actually fulfilling that need that’s imperative in this economy to give students more skills, more marketable skills,” Moran says.

      But I recognize that quaint sales technique of “fulfilling need.” The next step is overcoming objections. You ususally do that by looping the argument back to needs. That will be a challenge considering the veracity of the critics this “industry” has stacked up.

      I actually believe Brian Moran knows better and is no fool. That makes his clients’ customers the fools and Brian something worse.
