Timestamp: Sunday very early afternoon.
Among other reasons, you may see timestamps on a lot of my articles over the next few weeks because I’m rather busy in my personal life and am writing even further ahead of publishing than I normally do.
At the eleventh-hour Congress passed and President Biden signed a 45-day continuing resolution (CR) keeping the lights on in the federal government. A lot of people are claiming victory and celebrating like they actually achieved something. Because of my background, I like sports analogies. This is like someone stepping into the batter’s box, not hitting a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth, with the score tied, to win a championship. This is just the basics. Kind of like unlocking the store’s door at whatever opening time is in the morning.
