Corruption is the new black!
Is it corrupt to profit from your public office if all the profit comes after you held the office? In my professional circles, you can go work for the government for a few years and then leave and go make a bunch of $$ working for an accounting or law firm in the specific sub-discipline you worked in at the government. It is generally understood that you are forgiven for any sins you may have committed against the private sector during your public service, but I sometimes wonder if things are being held back or positions are not taken that might benefit the public for fear of harming future employment prospects.
Also, apparently the 2016 Olympics of Doom Opening Ceremony is, what, today? I think maybe it should take a decade off. When does Usain Bolt run the 100M final? This is still amazing. I hope he's clean.
Any good new music out there? Books?
Golf sucks without Tiger. Go Nats, but bring on the NFL!
