On Monday, White House director of new media Macon Phillips posted a note on the White House web site complaining of "disinformation about health insurance reform." "These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation," Phillips wrote. "Since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org."
Being a loyal patriotic American I got the message from Macon's WH office-of-keeping-an-eye-out-for-mobs loud and clear. I decided to watch closely for anything "fishy." Wow! Was I ever shocked at all of the "fishy" behavior going on in my neighborhood. I found a high level of fishiness and am doing my duty by reporting the following to The Snitch Czar in DC:
Lake N.: Taking limits of stripers on live baits worked 40 feet deep along the river channel ledges. The area near Marker 7 has been most productive. Scattered largemouth bass and crappie at night.
Lake W.: Catfish in the 10-pound range on cut baits drift-fished 20 feet down toward the backs of coves. White perch 15-25 feet deep around underwater humps on minnows. Largemouth bass, mainly at night, on buzzbaits, artificial lizards and worms. Crappie at night around lighted docks on minnows.
M.I. Lake: Mainly bream and catfish, including by anglers casting from the banks.
Memo to Snitch Czar-- Some of this information is a little out-of-date and exact locations of extreme fishiness are hard to extract. These guys and gals call themselves "anglers" and can be quite secretive about some of their info. Rest assured, I'll stay on the case! In the meantime, print out this information and then hide in a place where the sun won't reach it.
This group looks pretty sinister and downright fishy.
And, Snitch Czar, here's something really fishy: Thousands of people coming to visit DC on 9/12.
