Back in my reporter days, I called it the Summer Doldrums.
From about the end of July to Labor Day, on many days it was a challenge to produce a real news story. Nobody was watching TV anyway. The end of summer was always a good time to take vacation, if you had the days.
In many respects, I’m glad that I still live in a community where it’s difficult to find hard news in the heat of summer.
Yeah, I recognize the posts have been far too infrequent.
The Labor Day Parade was great. As far as my eight-year old daughter is concerned, marching in parades is about the most productive thing I do as a public servant. She passes out candy a lot better than I do. She went through bags of it. I talk too much. If I saw you, I hope I gave you a Tootsie Roll pop.
Time to get busy.
There’s plenty to talk about.
