President Obama addressed the nation concerning BP last night and spoke about it again today. I didn't hear what he said, but I've heard about it. The President apparently said that the government was going to take over the settlement of BP's claims because they were moving too slow. It's hard for me to imagine anything moving slower that the government, but there we are. It also appears that BP will be setting up a $20 billion fund to begin the settlement of claims. Even this fast way of doing thins will take at least 4 years.
Closer to home, Dennis Daugaard (I spelled it right! YAY!) will be selecting a running mate and making it public sometime tomorrow. I don't know who it is, but I'm sure of 2 thing: it's a Republican, and it isn't me. Well, of course not, he wants to win!
Cousin Al's newspaper, USA TODAY, had an interesting article about a European study that claimed obese women were 30% less likely to have sex than women who were of "normal weight". Obese women are 4 times more likely to have an unplanned pregnancy. Men have the same chances regardless of what their body mass index indicates. Amusing little story!
