Monday Musings - September 21, 2015

1. The last weekend of summer 2015 is behind us and ahead lies the beginning of the dark times. Sunrise is later and sunset is earlier every day. 

2. The loss in the 9th inning of yesterday's game probably effectively ended the Orioles season. They are 5.5 games out of the wild card with 13 games to play and four teams in front of them.

3. We are increasingly becoming an insanely intolerant society and even when innocent, people are treated like criminals. Read,  Virginia school suspends an 11-year-old for one year over a leaf that wasn’t marijuana.

4. I think the Pope's arrival in the US is garnering front page news coverage because we are all tired of the embarrassment that is the political process underway right now.

5. Writing of the presidential olympics--I'm still waiting for the one true candidate to emerge.

6. The potential of a government shutdown is looming large again. An interesting article in the Washington Post describes, Five things standing in the way of keeping the government open

7. The other morning, I was headed to work and noticed the stars above me in the dark sky. And there was Orion--reminding me that he is in control of the constellations for the next six or so months. I can't wait for him to leave again.

8. Ok, yes, the blog is late this morning, and probably all week because I'm in a different timezone.

9. Did I mention that summer is over? The pool is closed and the leaves are already falling form the trees? Morning temperatures are dipping into the 50's with 40's not too far behind? And my truck is broken!
