I am going to be busier than anyone who has not been an elected official can imagine this next week.
I’m talking about long days that run into night of hearing bills counter-balanced with arguments, fights, anger, jostling, jangling over-stimulation that does not stop.
What that means to the readers of this blog is that I won’t be able to respond to you as quickly as some of you would like. I may very well get snappy in some of my infrequent replies, and more than likely I will make some really dunderheaded mistake.
So I apologize in advance.
And ask your forebearance.
In the meantime, let’s pray for the next pope. We need a great man to lead us through these contentious times.
