Moving Right Along

With 50 senators ready to give the thumbs up on reconciliation, are we about to see some change actually happen?  The complexity of the issues and the utter brokenness of the system leave me tearing at my hair and honestly almost preferring near-random change to inaction.  (Of course I would not be saying that were Dubya still appearing to be in charge.)

On the sibling rivalry front, do you ever wonder what Liz Cheney and Mary Cheney actually think of one another?  Can you imagine what lurks under the surface at family Thanksgivings in that household?  Man … if any one of them every were to open up and actually experience the internal dissonances and conflicts that they each harbor it would be so amazingly and gloriously messy!  I wonder if they actually dissociate, as a way of coping … or are content to just be deeply and unrelentingly hypocritical.  It’s a question I sometimes ponder when running uphill (anger helps energize me for those climbs)!

Big Ben … WTF?  And this, right before your sister is gearing up for Tournament time?  That stinks, any way you look at it.

Speaking of Tournaments … are you ready?  Here’s the TV schedule (Central time, remember) through Selection Monday (that’s the Women’s selection date … the one that most of the world is ignoring … but not us!!!):
