I had planned a journal entry for today that involved a youtube video and wind. I can save it.
Instead, I'm going to exercise a point of personal privilege this morning, much as Congressman Chet Edwards did on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives last night. I encourage you to watch the entire twenty-five minutes if you have the time as he talks about what is right and best about America (this video starts about half a minute before he takes the floor, but it was the best I could do in the way of editing the C-SPAN video so that you didn't have to watch the preceding ten hours and 57 minutes of deliberations). If you don't have a half an hour to spare, skip to the second clip I have embedded below (SPOILER ALERT: Erin plays a featured role as her legacy becomes part of the permanent Congressional record.). It's just a minute or two that comes near the end of his speech. Let me know what you think.
