Housekeeping note

HOUSEKEEPING NOTE…. It’s likely to be a pretty slow news day, and I don’t imagine too many readers will be stopping by, so expect a very light posting schedule today (which is to say, this will probably be the only post).

I’ll be around in case something dramatic and/or unexpected happens, but if the political world is quiet today, “Political Animal” will be, too.

Here, by the way, is the weekly address from the White House, which includes a very worthwhile message about lending a hand to American troops and their families during the holiday season.

Whether you’re celebrating Christmas or just enjoying a day off, have a great one.
