Suspicious Packages

As federal investigators and the U.S. Postal Service scramble to figure out who is responsible for sending those pipe bombs to multiple Democratic leaders and backers, I’m rooting for a speedy arrest in the case.

My brother and sister-in-law work for the Postal Service, both behind the scenes in places where they’d be likely to encounter such a “problem package” if it came through their mail-handling facilities.

Grudging Admiration

Fall is in the air in Idaho, and the bees are frantically busy in the yard, burying themselves from dawn to dusk in patches of lavender, sage and oregano. I envy their industriousness, as I’ve been fighting a cold and haven’t felt like doing much of anything.
