Good morning from Washington DC and welcome back after a week which the House of Representatives elected a new Speaker of the House, Representative Mike Johnson (R-La.)!  After much fanfare and internal squabbling, House Republicans came together last week and decided to move forward in a collegial (almost friendly) manner to select the new Speaker.  […]

Good morning from a frazzled Washington, DC following a three-day weekend where not much has changed – but everything has at the same time.  Much like my six-year-old son in his almost empty jiujitsu class last night due to the holiday, the House is the only game in town.  Just as my son has previously […]

Good morning from Washington (Texas style) where we had a hurricane sitting on the DMV area and the Commanders and Cowboys both lost games in which they should have been more competitive.
