TVD Weekly Wax | Thin Lizzy

"What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them--that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works--whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account--to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day--because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government."

Quiet day in D.C?

Yep. Nothing to see here. ZZZzzz.

Honestly, the city's upside down. THRONGS of people with good will and optimism...just amazing.

Lovely.

...and y'know - that kind of goes for music in general.

Which IS what I was thinking at the time. But given the exhaustive and exhausting weekend...simply could not articulate.
