Gloomy Monday

Appropriate weather for all you folks who are gainfully employed. The beginning of another work week.

No More anxiety in this house, 'cause the other house passed the bill. It's a small step toward sensible health care in this our beautiful, dysfunctional country, but if we don't take the first step we will never get anywhere. Now we have, so let's see how well it works.

I have often wondered why those on the far right act with anger while those on the far left act with fear. Neither is very productive. Seems to me there are two possibilities for this politics of extremes that we currently experience. It's kind of an elastic band, either the ends will continue to pull apart until it snaps into some kind of civil war, or it will spring back toward the middle, where the real majority lives.
