A.B. Normal

Life goes on. But it is life in the slow lane. There's something to be said for that. Anyway, after yesterday's warning that it is still winter – the temperature made down to 26°F. (it's currently 41° and holding.) It hasn't been that low in quite awhile. And there are buds, blossoms and even leaves on the trees these days because of the abnormally warm temps. Or are these the new 'normal' temps? The next few days will be critical as the plants try to recover from this frigid blast.

I did read that there is a chance that the federal 'stimulus bill' could pass as early as today. With at least 3 Republican Senators acting responsibly, there is hope. Now if only we could find a few responsible Republicans in our state assembly…sigh. It won't happen; the Republican minority are simply too delighted in the power they have because of the 'super majority' rule in this state. These are all team players when what we need are individuals who can think for themselves.

I know I've said it before, but what we need from the news media are the opinion poll numbers for legislators to be published as often as they publish the ones for the President. Name some names and put them on the front page or on the 6 o'clock news.
