Thanksgiving Week (and beyond)

Just a quickie, Dear Gentle Reader(s), to thank Senator Jim Webb of Virginia for taking the sentry post in the U.S. Senate these two weeks. His presence in that hallowed hall prevents "recess" appointments which would wreak further havoc in the body politic.

If Mr. Bush wants to appoint someone to a position which needs Senate consent, he should make the nomination. He shouldn't make "recess" appointments.

Perhaps the nominees are persons of high caliber, but it's best to Trust, but Verify.

We appreciate Senator Webb's service in this rather thankless job.
