thoughts on the government

It was one week ago today that started a horrible chain of events here in the USA….

“Two bombs explode at the Boston marathon, killing three, critically injuring over one hundred and seventy…”

“poisonous Ricin envelope mailed to President Obama, Mississippi Senator….”

“fertilizer explosion in West, Texas kills one hundred and sixty, levels town.”

“city of Boston shut down while largest manhunt in history searches door to door for suspects of marathon bombing.”

Over the weekend I find myself in Sacramento, California. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere of downtown soothes tired and stressed emotions.  I sit on the capital building steps, the marble columns and granite structure bring peace after a weary week in the country I call home.

Wench, bring my ale, what say you?
