Monday Musings - October 7, 2013

1. The surest sign of ineptitude is the inability to resolve disputes amicably in order to serve the greater good of society.

2. Sadly, we elected our congressional representatives and they are doing just what we asked them to do--be singly focused upon a limited set of issues with little regard for governing the country.

3. Maryland's new cell phone and seatbelt laws are another example of legislative powers gone wildly awry.

4. They're back. The stink bug blight is underway.

5. Furlough Day 7 has turned into back to work day!

6. I watched a great football game yesterday. Denver and Dallas played a classic games where each team played awesome offensive football. 99 points were scored--the fourth most points scores in an NFL game scoring game of all time and one quarterback passed for over 500 yards and the other for over 400 yards. Yet, sadly, the game ends because of clock management. Earl Weaver had it right when he said something to the effect that in baseball there is no running out the clock--you still have to throw the ball over the plate.

7. The first weekend in October 2013 provided some fantastic weather for us to enjoy. It was reminiscent of summer. It is summer's last gasp. The last, parting kiss until next year. 

8. The government shutdown continues at the expense of the American public. And Congress does not seem to care.
