Babs Wants You
Donkey sent me over a copy of this email from work. Seems that Barbara Streisand will be in DC at some point for a once in a life time show. She retired a few years back if I am not mistaken..but perhaps she needs some $$ after she sued that environmental guy. Who knows...

$383 per ticket?! I don't even think my evil Bush tax cut was enough to cover that... In her ceaseless criticism of the Administration Babs asks....
"With all of the wealth in this country, why do we have schools in low-income neighborhoods that are overcrowded, lack accredited teachers and even lack basic supplies?" (April 4, 2003)
ANSWER: Because otherwise we wouldn't be able to pay to see overpaid celebrities warble about the stage interspersing their classics with timely, insightful political rhetoric. (There isn't even enough camp value here to justify these prices.)
