Random Thoughts for a Monday

How does Dennis Rehberg deal with all the contradictions in his positions? Now I see that he is upset that stimulus money isn’t getting to Montana fast enough to create jobs, even though he doesn’t believe that the stimulus will create jobs.

Spending the past six hours (and far too much of the summer) reading law review articles makes me wonder whether or not law schools teach their students to write poorly. Sadly, my day and a half at law school didn’t provide an answer to the question.

Is the Independent Record ever planning to cover something other than mental illness? The series has long outlived its potential to generate interest.

In or out. Either I am going to get back to actually blogging at this site, or give it up. I can’t say whether a lack of energy or a sense of frustration is driving my malaise, but I’m certainly not contributing much to the discussion at the moment.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.

    Good grief Pogie, your whining makes you seem like some "push me pull you" creature part Jimmy Carter and part Hillary Clinton. Snap out of it!!!! As Dr. Seuss said, "In my world, everyone's a pony and they all eat rainbows and poop butterflies!" Change your diet (digested thoughts) and improve the fragrance of your butterflies.
