Congressional Committees–Back to the Future

October 22, 2015


Dear Hildie:


Well, Oct. 21, 2015, came and went and, contrary to BACK TO THE FUTURE (an amusing little movie) not only are Fax machines passe, but the Cubs lost the playoffs.


I was watching the House Select Committee on Benghazi (or whatever they call it) as I ate breakfast. I was nauseated by the sententious, sanctimonious hogwash from Trey Gowdy, the chairman.  All he did was give a speech—the testimony is secondary to these guys’ chance to posture for the cameras. But, as someone who’s testified before one of these committees, I could hardly be surprised. Republican democracy at its finest. No wonder Washington said he’d be damned if he’d ever go down to Congress again.


Well, several nice projects in the offing. But the offing doesn’t pay the bills.


Take care.
