Nothing seen or heard. Nothing. I didn’t get out in the morning, so for all I know it was hopping then. But in the afternoon, in Clarke County, Virginia, on the slope of the Blue Ridge, nothing was moving.
Still, it was good to be out.
On a more ominous note, I see that the not-so-Super Committee is lurching toward its expected deadlock. Congress, as a whole, has thoroughly abdicated its Constitutional duties, and the Senate especially. There are some members of Congress I respect; but for every one there are three that I abominate.
