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.
We are heading for Minneapolis this morning for HomebrewCon. Perhaps this was the right time to get out of dodge while all this craziness seems to ramp up ever more each day.
