Epilogues


Mr. Buzzkill is back.

Well, now he's challenging a California ski resort for offering "Furlough Fridays" -- discounted ski lift tickets to state workers who have been forced to take a furlough because of the sagging economy. Rava says the discount violates state civil rights laws.

The state legislature is now busy slamming a bill through that protects such promotions.

Still, you really wonder if Rava's dry cleaner is putting too much starch in his briefs.
