Hot Diggity Dog...

I am so hungry that I could eat a horse, figuratively speaking of course. Although there was this one time in France that I had a really big steak and it was a little tough....

I just finished deposing a very cooperative Viveca Novak. My cases are all coming together now, but I have to finish wolfing down my pastrami on rye and chug this Yoohoo courtesy of her lawyer Hank Schuelke before grabbing a cab back to my office and the mission at hand - fighting for truth, justice and the American way.

Finally, feeling a bit sheepish here, but can anyone recommend how best to remove a mustard stain from wool slacks?

If the cloth is rayon, silk or wool: Mustard contains turmeric, a yellow dye. If not treated immediately, it can be impossible to remove. Use a dull knife or spatula to lift off as much spilled mustard as you can. Flush the area with dry cleaning solvent. If the fabric is strong enough, tamp or scrape to loosen the stain. Flush with dry cleaning solvent. While tamping stain, blot excess material with an absorbent pad. If stain remains, sponge with clear water and apply wet spotter and a few drops of white vinegar. Tamp again to loosen stain. Flush with water. If stain persists, moisten the area with 3-percent hydrogen peroxide and add a drop of ammonia (except on silk and wool). Do not let the bleaching solution remain on the stain any longer than 15 minutes, then flush with water and allow to dry.

Assuming you don't have a drug store in the office next to you, hie thee to the restroom. Get two good fists of toilet paper (not a ton, but maybe half a ton). Using COLD water (definitely NOT HOT), wet about 1/4 of one of the fists of toilet paper with running water so it is good and wet, still dripping a little. Put that wet glob INSIDE the pants right behind the stain (don't worry about how it looks yet), and then immediately place the other (completely UNWET) fist of toilet paper over the stain. Do not rub. Just squeeze between the two. The water from the wet glob will go through the pants and be absorbed by the dry fist of toilet paper, taking at least part of the mustard, or ink, or whatever, with it. You may need to do this four or five times (figure it will take twenty minutes to half an hour, unless a nuclear bomb goes off next door). When the stain is gone (you're happy, but still irritated), just squeeze the material between several shots of two dry fistfuls of toilet paper until even the dampness is gone(do not rub--if you rub, the toilet paper will leave a fine layer of itty bitts of pieces all over the material that everyone will be able to see and thereupon wonder WHAT you were doing). So just dab and/or squash, not rub! Like shaken, not stirred, or something. Tested over twenty years of slobbrietiousness and found to always work as long as even oily ink has not dried yet. 'Course, permanent ink will just ruin everything. If that happens, die. It won't be worth thinking about anything else. Been there. Might have been re-born afterwards, but don't feel real sure about it yet (it only happend about a decade ago).

Geez! These are all so complicated! Can't you just wear a mustard-colored tie?

Whoops. You said your pants. Sorry. Sometimes when you talk about your pants, I drift off into Fantasy Land. Mustard-colored pants would be kind gross. Don't go there.

Don't rub and shake . Dab lightly (hate that word dab) then SQUASH. That's advice - not for removing your stain - but for what you will do to the evildoers - SQUASH SQUISH SQUASH!!

To most effectively be stain-free, wear a different pair of pants.

CJT, I may be a little rough around the edges in some areas, but when it comes to women she does not compare to the caliber of company I desire or keep.

Hopefully, Ms Novak has adopted a view that it's more patriotic to tell the truth than protect her posterior. The spots are showing on some our journalists more than the mustard.

The Washington Post is reporting that Fitzgerald has presented evidence for the first time to the second grand jury in the leak case. Fitzgerald's decision to empanel a second grand jury indicates he meant business when he announced at the Libby indictment press conference that the investigation would continue.
Randall D. Eliason, who headed public corruption prosecutions in the U.S. attorney's office in Washington, said Fitzgerald would not go through the trouble of repeating information to a new grand jury unless he is considering criminal charges or there are significant, potentially criminal matters he wants to resolve.

"The fact that Fitzgerald is going through the effort to re-present is certainly a sign that the investigation is active," Eliason said.
Rove worked furiously to keep from being indicted along with Libby by providing last-minute evidence which the special counsel could not fully review before the expiration of the first grand jury. Since then, additional information has come to light including Bob Woodward's role in the Plame outing and Viveca Novak's communications with Rove's lawyer.

Viveca Novak is to scheduled to give a sworn deposition today to Fitzgerald about her conversations with Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin, alerting him to her knowledge that Rove outed Plame's identity to fellow Time reporter Matt Cooper. After being contacted by Novak, Rove apparently changed his story to the special counsel, claiming that he suddenly recalled his conversation after reviewing emails that documented the Cooper conversation.

Looks like Fitzgerald has Rove in his sights now.

A little oxyclean, soap and club soda.
Cup the one hand in side the cloth area where the stain is, put the soap/oxyclean on first, now pour some of the club soda in to your hand and use a fingernail to gently rub the stain out ...

repeat til finished.

Costco hotdogs are tops-!
