    And in other news . . .

    Not much.

    Good job as always, Jase, but I’m beginning to Jones for the state legislature to get started and produce something.

    • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

      Why? So that we can all wish that they would quickly adjourn as soon as they start trying to legislate microchips, alien spaceships and whatever new distractive political fads they seem to come up with each year to waste preciously limited time and money while the world burns.

      • Ken says:

        Perhaps it’s the near reality-show level drama.

        Perhaps it’s because – my personal reason – there is much that NEEDS to be done, or undone as the case may be.

    There is a slight chance of snow in the higher elevations (especially those close to the N. Carolina state line) as the low pressure area currently centered over western Kentucky and Tennessee continues to move eastward.

    It was certainly part of the deregulations that released the hounds of big finance to bet the bank and develop exotic ways to richly reward themselves at great risk to their customers.

    John Bogel, founder of the Vanguard Group of funds, and one of the more ethical CEO’s, spoke in favor of repealing the repeal. If you are interested, google is waiting.
