Good morning, All.  Another cool morning.  At least we don't have any fog.  We may get some showers later.  I should get some peppers in.  Maybe later.  As you could see, I didn't have much to say yesterday. I think what passes for news proves the old adage--the more things change, the more they stay the same.  And what can I say about the idiocy that passes for politics, governance, and economics that I haven't said before.

Hi, Lois.  Glad you are still kicking.  Hadn't heard about the sale of the Broadmoor.  Not surprising since the story wouldn't get coverage here in the Midwest.  Looking forward to your e-mail.

It is about time that someone called the Repthuglicans on their 'class warfare' whine.  Unfortunately, the cat fight might as well be in a padded room in the beltway asylum because no one in the mainstream media have picked up on the noise.

And, of course, the games continue pitting one group against another.  I absolutely hate the game of attaching bits of legislation to unrelated bills to either get something unpalatable passed or to pass something that wouldn't get the votes on its own.

I am amazed at how quickly the question of safety in the nuclear industry has disappeared from the media radar screens.  You would think the possibility of evacuating a sizable part of Tokyo's population would be note worthy.  Evidently former Prime Minister Kan had to seriously consider the action under a 'worst case scenario.'
