Dear Heloise,

I often have more dirty bowls and cups which go in the top of the dishwasher, than plates which go in the bottom.

It often means I have to let the cups and bowls pile up, until there are more dishes to wash, or, do a wash with a half filled bottom rack.

What do you recommend...and hopefully it will involve lemon juice?

A web ad? Is the McCain campaign too low on cash to buy TV time? Way to reach out to all the people who've already made up their mind, guys.

RE: voter roll purges, isn't it convenient for the Republicans that all of this chicancery is happening now, less than a month before the election? There is no way federal court cases will be finished and the problems fixed before some of those disenfranchised see the vote come and go without them.

The WaPo article on McCain in Iowa states that McCain's internal polling shows Obama with a single-digit lead there, and obviously they think he's vulnerable. But Iowa is only 7 electoral votes. Going over to and giving McCain all the swing states but NV and OH, and throwing in IA, Obama still wins with 293 electoral votes. All the swing states are leaning Obama per all the available polling data.

I saw one of those Ayers ads with the sound off this morning, and I thought: Oh my God! Obama is friends with a white guy? At least visually, the ad accomplished nothing.
