    "I mean what I say when I say what I mean and you all know what I mean...", says Al Gore, looking awfully mean.

    What do you do about your beach house on the Delaware Bay?
    Is it going to be in the water soon and how do I prevent it?
    It has been there forever but I will probably be gone by the time it is under water. It has a sand done in front of it to protect it. Camille

    Psst. Mr. Gore. The podium is clear. Everyone can see what you're doing with the other hand.

    You couldn't make it exclusively an e-book and save a tree or three. Hypocrite much?
