Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Winter Is Coming

The winter storm that made driving to Georgia so miserable on the 26th, left another batch of misery for us upon our return.  It laid about three inches of hard packed ice (wintry mix) on most surfaces.  Then another storm came by and laid a delightful five inches of fluffy powder on top of that.

Trying to shovel it is a frustrating and painful combination of flying powder and shoulder crunching hardpack.

Oh, yeah, and the Fiscal Cliff, blah blah blah.

The way the deal passed the House could be a really good template if Boehner wants to be a legislator.  Or he could stay the King of Fools.

His choice.
