Home Again, Home Again
Another venture into the travel industry's "Summer from Hell" once again left us relatively unscathed. Of course, we're just ahead of the Labor Day Weekend rush, so things may get worse in the next few days. But even with small children in the seat behind us, and a baby only a few months old in the seat behind them, our flight was uneventful.
Back home, a quick look at the news brought some welcome developments. Just because Alberto Gonzales is taking his ball and going home next month, that's not enough to keep him from having to oversee a Justice Department investigation into his own questionable statements before Congress. To be accurate, I doubt he's actually overseeing the investigation himself--even the Bushies can't quite get away with that. But he's still in charge for a few more weeks, and it's nice to know that with all his power and influence, he doesn't have the ability to subvert the U.S. system of justice from seeking out what is true and just. We all know, of course, that this power of subversion is held in other hands, hands that are not afraid to use it, so don't get your hopes up. But still, it's the last weekend of summer, so we shouldn't worry about justice being denied. There'll be plenty of time for that after Labor Day.
