8-4-11 Double Double Toil and Trouble

Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress.

But I repeat myself. – Mark Twain

I bet many of you have heard or seen this quote before but never has it seemed more appropriate, especially as applied to the House of Representatives.

I’ll have two scoops of recession at my tea party please!

The Nautica New York City Triathlon is on Sunday and the swimmers will be taking off from my default entrance to the river. They spent much of today building the launching platform.  I would sure love  to shoot them heading into the water but they start at 5:50am and I won’t back in town in time to see that.  I will be in Boston on Saturday at the Red Sox-Yankees game with my Mother who was kind enough to invite me.

Wait until next year…
