Ups and Downs of the week.

Olympics – Glad to see American athletes doing so well. But NBC’s coverage is pretty lousy. No surprise there.

Red Sox – Spring training begins.

Bureaucracy – The tune is the same. The lyrics have changed. Now “It’ll save money” will get almost any idea accepted with little or no thought and no real proof of savings. Just like speaking out against our loss of freedoms was “unpatriotic,” speaking out against ill-conceived “money saving” plans is now considered “irresponsible.”

Weather – Yet another storm coming this weekend.
