For What It's Worth, I offer a few personal observations about the Syria deal.
If you kind of relax, you know half close your eyes, and just listen to the Senate hearings, the speakers begin to morph into used car salesmen wearing cheap suits: low balling, then high balling, leaving out details, and asking ”How can I earn your business today?”

Once upon a time, we lived in Florida in a beautiful gated neighborhood. We often took a brisk walk in the neighborhood before daylight. On a Tuesday, Michael was walking alone. A man followed Michael in his car. He asked Michael for ID. He was quite agitated. From his position in the car it seemed as if he had a gun. Michael said, "I live here. My house is just around the corner." The car followed along, speeding up, braking and then driving up on the sidewalk - as if he might run him down.

August, 2005. Hurricane Katrina, the largest and third strongest hurricane to ever make landfall in the United States, took thousands lives. Millions were left homeless that summer.
I offered my services to help raise relief funds for New Orleans in a charity event in Florida.
I arrived early prepared to contribute to a worthy cause. I did not know it but I was about to have a completely unexpected experience.

Our year and a half old, a one of kind comical and adorable basset - retriever rescue dog we adopted, was no where to be seen.
