Milton, PA– I came down here last night with a load of  green beans and such. They’re unloading me as I write this. It’s cool around here today, but not yet cold, except at night. My truck is running fine.   My internet connectivity is a little screwy as I get used to the new phone. […]

Obama’s speech, or lack thereof, reax from Jennifer Rubin, Washington Post: He did say one indisputably true thing: The downgrade was more a comment on our political dysfunction than on our ability to repay our debts.
