The small number with a big meaning

This Sunday, the two female Iraq War combat veterans in Congress – Democrats Tammy Duckworth and Tulsi Gabbard – react to the Pentagon’s sexual assault report.

An estimated 26,000 cases of unwanted sexual contact occurred among service members in 2012, though only 3,374 cases were reported. The results sparked strong reactions from Capitol Hill.

A Different Way to Spend a Monday

One of the consequences of producing State of the Union is an odd work schedule.  My “Saturday” lands on Monday.  And the beginning of the work week is Wednesday.  Back in my days of bachelorhood; having Monday and Tuesday off translated to many rounds of golf. Not so now that I am happily married with kids.  Though I used to play a lot more often, I never was very good.  Now my Mondays and Tuesdays look more like Michael Keaton in “Mr. Mom” and less like an episode of the Golf Channel’s “Golf Academy.”
