It’s hard not to talk about the wacky weather we’ve been having. 70 one day and a chance of a rain-snow mix the next. It’s not as unusual as what you might think but it’s noteworthy.
Sometimes people do things and at least you understand to some degree why they did it. Sometimes people do things and you wonder if they’re crazy. Sometimes people do things that remove all doubt about their sanity.
Quote of the Day: “The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and the self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.” …Theodore Roosevelt
