Well, I am back. Can't say that I am all that happy to be once again behind my desk, but those student loans won't pay themselves.
But, at least things are not boring on my first day back. Jack Abramoff is expected to plead guilty soon to 3 felony charges and to start cooperating with prosecutors in the Washington corruption scandal. There will be many congressmen who are hit hard by Abramoff's cooperation, but the biggest two at this point seem to be Republican Bob Ney or Ohio, and Republican Tom DeLay of Texas.
Unless there is significant parity between the number of Democrats tied up with Abramoff, this is bad timing for the Republicans who are going into the mid term elections with the "culture of corruption" tags already hanging around their necks.
