Recently over lunch, again, a former colleague of mine, from the party of which I am not a member, and I discussed a major difference between DC and Virginia politics. We both agreed that Virginia’s law banning legislators from raising money or even attending fundraisers during Session was worth replicating at the federal level.
Cold Fusion has been on sabbatical due to the brief illness and eventual passing of my mom on January 14th. I started back up writing a few weeks ago and posting on my website’s blog – www.chrissaxman.com; however, my Cold Fusion emails were very special to mom. She reviewed every one of them before I hit send. Like just about every son, I didn’t take all of her edits, but I soaked up her praise.
Strange isn’t it? No one is complaining about any, and I mean ANY, decisions made by the referees in the National Football League.

Lawrence Peter “Yogi” Berra is considered to be one of the best, if not the best, catchers of all time. He appeared in eighteen All Star Games, won thirteen World Series as a player or coach, and was American League Most Valuable Player three times.

None of them were ever mean spirited to one particular person; however, Yogi did say “all pitchers are liars or crybabies.”
