Quote of the Week

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that U.S. Representative Laura Richardson (D-CA), one of the Congressional Black Caucus members that lavished praise on Cuba's regime during an April trip to the island, has her Long Beach neighbor's upset about her home's upkeep -- or better yet, lack of upkeep.
  
Richardson's home is "abandoned and in disrepair," according to neighbors.
 
"I wouldn't want anyone that irresponsible to represent me," said Bailey [a neighbor], who like Richardson is a liberal Democrat. "What I don't get is how she has the time to visit with Fidel Castro but doesn't have time for her own house. If you can't manage your own household, you probably shouldn't get involved in international affairs."
