Yesterday Jeff Sessions took his elfin little self to Congress to testify. He spent the time being fawned over by Republicans and "conveniently" forgetting everything that happened when questioned by Democrats (and Republicans with a smidge of integrity). How does one get to that level in our government while managing to forget everything?

This morning, there was a shooting at a ball field about a mile from our house. It's located between a YMCA and the dog park where we take our dogs. There was a congressional softball team practicing that were the apparent targets. According to news reports, "dozens of shots" were fired, injuring four people. One of them was House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA); another one apparently was a security officer. The shooter is supposedly in custody. I am certain this story will develop more fully throughout the day.

Good Morning.

I honestly don't know what to make of our first story today. Military Daily News usually plays it fairly straight, but I find something very irritating here.

The headline is "Compared to George W. Bush and Obama, Trump Doesn't Micromanage". However, when you read the story...

Good Evening.

I'm just back from weekend 2 of another Woodbadge experience. Our finely-tuned staff matriculated another 30 highly trained Scout leaders to return to their home units and make their programs better for their Scouts.

Looking Beyond the Circus

Yesterday was the warm-up act, the opening band for the Big Show. Some were disappointed with the lack of revelations from Coats and Rogers (which sounds like a 70s folk duo), but there were plenty of things NOT said that indicate trouble in paradise. Today, though is what everyone has been waiting for: an unrestrained-by-his-job Comey testifying before Congress. The country as a whole - but DC in particular - is getting ready for it's big wonkgasm.

I suspect a lot of folks will be disappointed, because the only thing Comey will be able to testify to is obstruction of justice by tRump (which should be enough to get him impeached). Most of the Russia-related details will likely still be considered classified, and will have to be relegated to a secure meeting.

Good Morning.

As you probably know, I spent 30 years in the healthcare industry before recently leaving my desk job to learn how to drive a tour bus. (Road test today, BTW!)

In any case, for the last 20 years, I've been working in a niche industry - "EDI", or Electronic Data Exchange. Part of the claims data transactions that I worked on was EHR/EMR, or Electronic Medical Records.

"Cheesy is one of the words banned in my world. I’m tired of sincerity being something we have to be afraid of doing. It's been like that for 20 years, that the entertainment and art world has shied away from sincerity, real sincerity, because they feel they have to wink at the audience because that’s what the kids like. We have to do the real stories now. The world is in crisis."

Some people have the nerve to go around defiling President Donald J. Trumpts MAGA acronym. Is it an acronym or a synonym or a cinnamon? I forget. Anyway. Those crazy Bernie bots and Hillary hysterics are going around saying Make Earth Great Again, just because President Trump had the foresight to pull out of the Paris climate agreement. He's pulling out but going back in, people. It's not like he's screwing us!
