    Sorry, Jem … y’all still had a good season. Tough loss at the end. Probably last week took all they had. After a win like that, it’s hard to turn around in a week to recreate the enthusiasm and spirit, the “high,” needed. After an undefeated season, WI had a tough day, too.

    At our end, we’re just happy to see the alma maters at unusually high for them #’s 15 and 20!!! (I have to say this for Stanford: my daughter was an econ TA there a few years ago during football season – one of her students was on the football team. WHO takes econ during their prime athletic season? Anyway, she worked with him, but never gave consideration to granting a single point to improve his grade. Even our military academies make sure their athletes *do well* no matter what).

    Unusually nice weather continues for now. It IS December, so we know it’s going to come to an end before too long, but we’re enjoying lovely December sunshine and moderate temps.

    Last week I came to a rather xenophobic realization. What I like almost best about Thanksgiving is that this town empties out except for ‘natives’ and ‘illegals.’ All the political types leave town and go back to wherever they’re from. Just wish they’d stay there!!! Not too many years ago DC was a manageable small city/big town. It wasn’t ugly like it is now. You could become friends with someone of the opposite party or with opposing views, and it was healthy. No more. Sad. (as DJT would say).

    Now, to complete the process of preparing to set up the tree. Ugh. Is it possible to reschedule Christmas to, oh, I don’t know, April ??

      Christmas in April!! that is funny…no I like Easter in April, and Christmas, well, sometime in winter….Evenin’ ED. Do you enjoy the decorations in DC….the Christmas trees…Union Station,….the LC, etc.?

    • edinva says:

      Molly, didn’t get around to seeing the tree today, will get it done over the coming weeks. Just disappointed I can’t get a confirmed visit to the WH while these decorations are up. They look positively gorgeous. Magical. And, of course, lefties are throwing their all too predictable hissy fit. Gotta love that. We are doing Christmas here this year with daughter’s family so will be taking in a LOT. A LOT !! She’s taken the Christmas Eve dinner upon herself, leaving me only the Christmas morning brunch that’s a piece o’ cake (literally and figuratively). ALMOST in the spirit!

    FINALLY – Nunes is the first R to blow a gasket on the soft coup.

    “By hiding from Congress, and from the American people, documented political bias by a key FBI head investigator for both the Russia collusion probe and the Clinton email investigation, the FBI and DOJ engaged in a willful attempt to thwart Congress’ constitutional oversight responsibility”

    Need more to tackle this mess. If Mueller is a set-up to take down R’s – especially in the next election cycle…….that is the cat’s meow.

    NOW R’s….go after the rest of them. Don’t just sit there. And turn up the volume on ABC and Brian Ross. And why not the ABC editorial standards which allowed it to happen?

      I keep remembering Mueller, Comey, McCabe and Rosenstein served in nobama’s administration. I cannot understand the timid way the repubs react to democrats.
