Fwd: AUGUST 7, 2013

     I hope I won't miss the old Washington Post.  I won't know for a while--none of us will.  The old Post was a fine, distinguished--your choice of complimentary adjectives--newspaper.  It broke the first news of the Watergate scandal, which led to the only presidential resignation in our history--Richard Nixon's.  It's done a lot of other good stuff over the years too I think the Graham family, which owned it, gets a lot of the credit.  The new man?  We'll have to wait and see.

     One other political note--a couple of networks are planning programs about Hillary Clinton, a likely 2016 presidential candidate.  This has led the Republicans to say:  if you do that, we'll rethink our participation in the 2016 presidential debates. If I were the Democrats, I'd say, go ahead guys--we'll have debates with the Socialist, the Unitarian candidates, any others we can scare up.  I bet people would watch--not as many, but quite a few.  Plus there'd be lots of stories about the Republican wimping out.

     Good thinking, GOP?
 Maybe not.
