Congress runs home to get re-elected…

Good morning, Netizens...

I believe it was Will Rogers who once penned that we should hide women and children whenever Congress is in session. Well, as of today, women and children are once again safe because Congress is heading home to tend their re-election fires, hopefully to return after vacation. Did Nancy Pelosi get the job done? I'll leave that determination for everyone else, but I think not. Unemployment and poverty are higher, health care is still a nightmare and there is no end in sight to the bad economic news.

However, as the cartoon shows, the Congress is leaving with a job half-completed.

But at least, thank God it's Friday! Just a few more days of summer-like weather and then our temperatures will return to seasonal norms and it will be time to gather tomatoes as quickly thereafter as possible before the killing frost arrives.

Where did the summer go? It was about as short-lived and perhaps less-useful than Congress, some say.
