How this blog is like the Iraqi Paliament

That's right– we both basically took the month of August off.  Unlike the Iraq Parliament, here I am back in action before the much-anticipated September report on “The Surge.”  I never meant to take August off, it just kind of happened.  But, as one cannot expect Iraqi Parliamentarians to work in the Baghdad heat, we've had record-breaking heat here in central, NC.  The highest previous mean temperature for August was 80, and this year it's been 84.  We've set or tied half a dozen records.  Even with Karl Rove retiring, it's hard to blog in weather like that (nobody mention the whole air conditioning thing).  So, my plan is to be back in the metaphorical saddle.  I guess we'll see.
