Monday Musings - March 27, 2017


1. It is the last Monday of March 2017. It seems like the month began only yesterday.

2. Fortunately, Saturday was a fantastic day, weather wise. Yesterday was a bit of a bust.

3. Who rests in former President James K. Polk's tomb? It may not be the former President for much lingerie according to a story in the morning's New York Times

4. March Madness has been weaned to the Final Four. Is your bracket still alive with North Carolina, South Carolina, Oregon and Gonzaga. My bracket is kind of busted! Although, I still have two of the four.

5. One week from today is Orioles Opening Day! Current forecast if for partly cloudy skies and 61 degrees. That would make it both warmer and drier than some of the Opening Days that I have attended.

6. The problem with our Congress is that they are more interested in not passing legislation than they are in ensuring the proper functioning of the government. What happened to bipartisanship? Will the country have a budget this year?

Quote of the Day


"It's time to put politics aside and do what the Congress knows has to be done sooner or later anyway: give the American people a budget process that controls spending, a budget process we can be proud of."

Ronald Reagan
