Good morning on this sunny and, again, cool day. It should be a little warmer but still a bit below normal.

Of course, political news casts a cold shadow. This came to my attention. When our elected officials feel they need armed guards to protect them from us we no longer have anything that resembles a democracy. I am sorry but the idiot who attacked the baseball practice isn't sufficient reason to give $10 million to individual members of the national legislature for the rest of this fiscal year (and additional monies for members to invest in surveillance equipment and to bulk up the Capitol police). So far the most dangerous aspect of their job seems to be sharp questions from their constituents they don't want to answer. That doesn't require armed guards and surveillance equipment just an intelligent  and respectful answer.
