On Tuesday, after getting into a minor dust up with Army Corps of Engineers division leader Brigadier General Michael Walsh over Hurricane Katrina cleanup, Barbara Boxer corrected him over something minor:
"Could you say 'senator' instead of 'ma'am? It's just a thing. I worked so hard to get that title. I'd appreciate it."
Who on God's green earth does Senator Barbara Boxer think she is, Diana Ross?
Anyway, Babs was henceforth referred to as "Senator" by the General.
