The Irish are such clear thinkers ...
"We in Ireland can't figure out why you in the U.S. even bothered to hold an election. On one side you had a woman who is a lawyer, married to a lawyer, running against a lawyer who is married to a woman who is a lawyer. (OrMag -- that is, the primary battle between the Clintons and the Obamas ... lawyers all.)
"On the other side, you had a war hero married to a good looking woman who owns a beer distributorship. Isn't it obvious who should run the country?"

Harry and David know what the season is all about:
“A woman came into our food pantry with tears in her eyes. Her husband had been out of
work for a long time and she had four young children to feed, says Kathleen Greene, supply coordinator with a local food pantry. "When she saw all the fresh produce that we had available, her tears vanished and she smiled. She talked about all the healthy meals she could cook for her family with the produce. On her way out of the pantry, she turned to me and said that this had been the worst day of her whole life. 'But now I
feel great,' she said."
