Washington DC is no place for a civilized man to spend the summer. — James Buchanan

I love that quotation, even though I have no clue if it’s valid. But it’s certainly the right approach to August around here.

Blame the spotty posting around here on the hazy-hot-humid weather (101 one day last week and in the 90s for the next thirty weeks or so) and a very busy week at work.

Although it’s not going to happen, I wouldn’t mind leaving town for the rest of the summer like W, the congress critters, all their support staffs, and any lobbyist with a decent expense account.

I guess I’ll just have to find an air conditioned corner, catch up on my feeds, and write a few rants to beat the heat and preserve some sanity.

summer, dog days, washington dc
