(Editor’s note: With today’s entry, this blog will now appear daily. There’s just too much going on in our industry right now for me to sit back and weigh in once or twice a week. Now whether’s that’s good news or bad is an entirely different issue.)
I know it’s not just me – at least not this time. Most of us hate Congress – typically much more than we hate the president – unless you’re a rodeo clown from my home state, of course. According to the latest poll from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, a staggering 83 percent of Americans disapprove of the way Congress does (or doesn’t do) its job. Who says we can’t agree on anything?
