pop the cork

The 112th US Congress has convened on Capitol Hill, and for the first time since 1946, there isn't a single member of the Kennedy family on the roster.

Got any champagne left over from New Year's Eve?

    I'm saving my bottle for when both Cardinal Mahoney and Bishop Hubbard are formally retired and there-by no longer causing indigestion for faithful Catholics in the United States.

    No champagne, I tried it once, didn't like it. Got part of a wine bottle still though. Like some?

    No, we're all out. Drank the last bottle a few days ago when we realized that today would be the first since 1946 when no Kennedy was in Congress.
