The Wobbly Throne

        We've all been there.  You know, you're at someone's house, or you check into an otherwise respectable hotel, the Call of Nature comes, you square yourself for the landing, and sit down for what my university roommate used to call a near-religious experience.  And - oops - suddenly you feel like you're "one bun on, one bun off" and teetering on the brink of dethronement.  From bliss to panic in the middle of at least one bodily function.  All because of a loose toilet seat, one of my personal pet peeves.  And that's all I'm going to say about that.

The Good News:  Irene is history, and so is CNN's attempt at mass hysteria.
