And So I Go: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

“The Hill” articles you might have missed.

Posted on: April 5, 2012

Here is a list of articles that appeared in The Hill that you may have missed on the news.  I get The hill emailed to me because it is a great source of accurate news, but for those of you who do not I will continue to put the weekly summary of the biggest news  reports on my blog.  BB

I am not in the mood to comment this week because the Liar in Chief has so incensed me this week and I am afraid I can not remain civil if I begin to comment.  So Dear Readers you are on your own without my two cents worth ( yeh, I know it’s only worth 1/2 of one cent but give an old girl some slack okay!??)
