NAZ: "Doing very little or nothing is not something that you keep locked away and hidden from the general public. Or maybe you do..." This is the story: Something observed has to be measured to be analyzed; One cause can have more than one effect; One effect can be caused by more than one cause; Causes almost certainly have to be [...]

The reasons elude me why the mainstream media is so attached to someone that will become unimportant by the end of 2013. Minneapolis mayor R.T.
