I realize that I gripe too much about our current President, but reading about his daily misdeeds really do make me ill. For a sampler, read today’s installment of Today’s Papers. It’s like this just about every day. Obviously there’s the story about the IMF, but some other treats include a lobbyist conference to set this year’s legislative agenda (sponsored by energy companies and attended by Republican legislators), and a loosening of regulations on mountain top removal mining. Also mentioned is resistance by the beef industry against more regulation in the wake of the mad cow scare. Something tells me that will be effective given the current administration. It’s like this every day.
