Busy Day, Busy Week

On a personal note, I've got a lot to do this week, so expect me to be scarce.

On a broader note, however, I didn't want the tragedy in Tucson to recede another day into the past without saying something about it. The problem is, most of what I would say has already been said by others, and I'm not sure I have anything significant to add. Save for this one piece of irony.

I am glad to know of Christina Taylor Green, but I wish I had not come to know of her until years later, when she (presumably) would have run for office.

I hugged Muffin and Squeaker extra long tonight.
