"Mo" was a gift in 1974. He appeared as if summoned by an ancient incantation. His mischievous smile and quick wit would brightened the most Al-bone day. Then, as is often the case, he moved the tassel to the other side of the mortar board and disappeared almost as mysteriously as he had arrived. Left lingering in the air was the poetry of his name, Mohezin Tejani.
So on a lark I Googled Mo ... and just look what I found: The Chameleon's Tale.

Washington - Legislation meant to help distressed U.S. homeowners by allowing bankruptcy courts to adjust the terms of mortgages on primary residences has stalled in the Senate, said congressional aides on Friday.
Democrats backing the bill - known as "cramdown" and opposed by most of the banking industry - have been unable to line up the 60 votes needed to clear the way procedurally for it to move ahead, the aides said.
"We're stuck in a place where we don't have 60 votes to pass the House bill as is," said an aide to a senior Democrat.
They can find it in their hearts to give BILLIONS to A.I.G. but they cannot help the guy on Main Street.
... and people wonder why, as a culture, we have such contempt and distrust of politicians!!!
