As I read about and watch today’s Congressional stand-off I cannot help but think that maybe some literal, rather than proverbial, mud would serve our Republic better.  So, given the shut-down, wouldn’t it make sense for our reps to take the afternoon off and find some nice paths in the Capital to let out some steam?  But perhaps the “debate” is far too along for even the mentally cathartic benefits of a good hard hour or so of dirt-road riding to make a difference, although I remain an optimist.
