There’s an old farmers’ maxim “March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb.” If the same scenario applies to news, then take it all in now and get ready for a calm quiet time later this month.
The first day of March had a gladiatorial contest scheduled, as the Senate took up debate around the Blunt Amendment, allowing both sides to present their argument about how the other will destroy your quality of life.
And, in that same spirit of combat, today we lost conservative firebrand Andrew Breitbart, who never seemed to shirk from confrontation at any point in his life.
