It's been a peaceful couple of days. It's been nice to have a breather from work, and from politics, and to spend time at home with my wife. The only thing missing is the snow--which hasn't fallen at all this year.
2006--a tumultuous year, to be sure--is coming to a close. The coming week will be a good time to reflect on the year that is ending, and the new year to come. We'll do lots of that, don't worry.
For now, though, enjoy the holidays, and forget about politics for a little while.
Or, if like me, you just can't forget about politics, read an interview with Rell by Associated Press writer Susan Haigh. Rell is promising to bring back the elimination of the car tax, and to be a "voice of reason." She and the legislature are promising action on energy issues, including letting NU and UI back into the generating business. An interesting read.
