This week is Holy Week for many of us. Passover begins this evening at sundown. Easter activities begin toward the end of the week. These are among the most sacred of times for those of us who observe and practice the Jewish or Christian faith.
These activities will be juxtaposed against the final days of the legislature and Sine Die, where many of the most unholy acts of governance are likely to occur in the designed confusion that is the final hours of the legislature.
A lot of us here will be trying to observe one while covering the other. Keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we try to balance the message of one against the observance of something so much more fundamental to who we are.
May those of you who are observing Passover have a peaceful time with friends and family this week. May those celebrating Easter do the same.
I’ll note that I plan on being scarce around here from Friday noon through the weekend. Those who wish to get a start on the legislative recap may continue to do so, but most of us will likely save the post mortem until next week. Until then, find some time amid the chaos of politics this week to reach out to family, friends, and those things worth cherishing.
