School’s Over

Well, Summer is here in Washington (DC), the temperature is near 90, and the baseball team just gained a lead in their game. My lawn mower is in the shop, where I should have taken it in the “off season”. Despite promises to have it ready in a week, I am making early inquiries about borrowing one for the next cutting.

Another political excitement this week with the testimony of the former director of the FBI about what the President expected from him has brought on another political scandal that will be investigated into the Fall (at a minimum). The President continues to travel and issue statements that his staff attempts to clarify, downplay, and generally wish had not been made. We can expect this to continue, as will the special committee of Congress that is investigating the whole mess, existing and prospective.

All in all, a more active summer than I had expected.
