121217METOOYou know GLOBers someone seems to get in my face every time I say something political.  But the surprise democratic win in Alabama last night isn't about red and blue states.  As Spike Lee says it is about doing the right thing.  KUDOs to Alabamians for sitting, thinking and realizing it isn't always just about winning.  What a relief smarter heads prevailed last night.  God Bless America, and Kirsten Gillibrand!

Have a terrifically tubular Tuesday lunch GLOBers and I will see ya right here tomorrow morning.
