Frequent Venice Gondolier columnist Mary Kay Ruppel wraps up her Friday column with assurances to readers that she's meticulous about naming sources. It's her closing note in a tirade constructed largely around at least five unnamed sources. Thanks for the reassurance, Mary Kay!

"...Jamie Gorlick, another Clinton buddy is also said to be worth in excess of $100 million ..."
"...Barack Obama is said to be the third-largest recipient of Fannie Mae's political contributions reported at more than $100,000 ..."
"... Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Barney Frank have also allegedly benefited from this financial crisis ..."
" ... P.S. I am meticulous about giving sources when I quote other columnists, newspapers, etc."
