From our Chicago Agent in the Field:
I always knew Jenny McCarthy was worthless. And that Mark Wahlberg's brother was...well...Mark Wahlberg's brother and not Mark Wahlberg. Because Mark Wahlberg would never settle for Jenny McCarthy.
Anyway, deep down inside I wish that what we "perceive" is not what "is" and that we're just being pessimistic. Sadly, when I see this I start to realize that the problem really does run that deep and that it really is an issue.
