Timestamp: Early Sunday morning
On Friday morning I received an email from freshman Democratic Representative Jeff Jackson. (While I live in his state I don’t live in his district. I’m sure part of the reason he emailed me is because he wants my endorsement and vote in his upcoming run for North Carolina Attorney General. In time he will most likely be pleased on both counts. You see the North Carolina Republicans redistricted him out of his seat in Congress. Funny how that happens. No, it isn’t!) The title of the email was “Seven days until shutdown“. The timestamp is necessary but in reality, nothing of substance has transpired between that email and this writing. I’m betting not much else of substance will between now and publishing.
