Cut and run.

Run, without cutting first.

Cut. Just cut. No running.

Stand very still, then run suddenly—without cutting.

Stay the course.

Alter the course—but only slightly. Without cutting and running.

Stay the course—for a while. Then cut and run.

Damn, this is refreshing after the "Murdoch Cram-fest" last night! I only missed one, so I guess I still know WTF is going on. Kinda. ::sigh::

Can you PLEASE cross post this at EPU? I'm a huge Sopranos fan (as is Miss Julie).

P.S. And I OWN the lower casing of Cheney's first name!!
