-- Gasoline prices continue to rise during the holiday season, baffling "experts". The Chronic also weighs in to tell us it's no big deal (yet, they helpfully caution).
-- The Big Dog came to San Antone yesterday for Ciro. B and B has pictures and Muse has video. Election Day for TX-23 is tomorrow.

-- Financial wisdom I may be beating Bonddad to: consider turning your IRA into a Roth. Really.
-- Some good Sunday Funnies here.
