There was a lot of activity in Washington, DC this week, both on and off the Senate floor. One critical story that I fear may have been a bit overlooked in the shuffle was the passing of one America's legendary heroes, Mrs. Rosa Parks. [blah, blah, blah]
Also, yesterday I called on Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Pete Domenici (R-NM) and Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee Chairman Ted Stevens (R-AK) to hold a joint hearing to examine reasons for high energy prices. I know that energy prices are a major issue on the minds of all Americans, and we must examine why at the same time oil companies are posting record profits, Americans are paying more than ever to fill up their cars and heat their homes. These hearings are an important step in protecting consumers and our economy from high energy prices. [Look, I did sumin good! Sort of.]
Elsewhere this week, the Senate continued preparations to consider next week's deficit reduction package. [Nothing big, just domestic stuff you count on]
As I'm sure you read or saw on the news this week, Harriet Miers asked the president to withdraw her nomination to the Supreme Court. [Who? The news? Miers? Huh?]
Lastly, I'm proud this week to have joined with Senator Alexander to honor the 80th anniversary of the Grand Ole Opry. [Finally, something IMPORTANT!]
Have a good week, I'll be in touch.

So a lot of you are saying that its ok for the oil companies to gouge our eyes out. Its their right. Pffft, like we have alternative ways to get our gas.
