On this my 35th birthday and the start of my vacation I offer you, dear reader, a glimpse into my mind. You've been warned.
After just over a year (since I began my awesome job down in DC) I recently ended my hiatus from the morning crossword puzzle, finding it to be a fun way to get the brain working before I hit the office every morning.
This morning, as it is with many, I was stumped by a clue:
The elected leaders of the free countries of this earth are empowered not only by the laws they uphold and create, but also by the faith of those who have sent them to do these things. The faith that a person elected will come together with the other elected representatives of the people to wisely consider all sides of an issue before laws are made or enforced. The faith that these elected men and women will represent the interests of the constituency that sent them to office and not a constituency of cash or ideology. The faith that these are open-minded people who have been sent to office. I have lost that faith.
