Following the advice of +Michael Hyatt, I started a blog The Z Section. +Michael Hiles had something to do with it, too, as did others. Check it out.

The debt-limit debate has reminded me of a conversation I had a few months ago. Someone had recently traveled to Washington, D.C., to speak with his senators and congressman about energy issues. One of the senators told him those in House of Representatives needed to pass legislation that the Senate could support. This struck me as odd.

Americans have voted for divided government. We have saw fit to elect Barack Obama to the presidency, keep a Democratic majority in the Senate and return the House to Republican control.

Essentially, my interpretation was this: The senator only wants to see legislation the Democratic-controlled Senate will pass. This is not the way government works, nor should it. Conversely, the Republican-led House has no right to dictate to the Senate what bills it should take up or pass or send over to the House.

Which brings me back to the debt-limit argument. Fifty-three senators have sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner stating they will not vote for his plan. There was no need for the letter, because if the legislation makes it over to the Senate they can send an even bigger message by actually voting no.

I do not know if the Boehner plan is good bad or indifferent. If the Senate does not like it, Majority Leader Reid could come up with an actual plan to address the issue.

Elections have consequences.

In a roughly 36-hour span, Wendi and I visited Green Animals Topiary, Portsmouth, R.I.; walked along a portion of the Cliff Walk in Newport, R.I.; walked around the wharf area in Newport; ate a slice of cheese at Mystic Pizza in Mystic, Conn.; enjoyed a meal at Daniel Packer Inne in Groton, Conn.; slept at Abbey's Lantern Hill Bed & Breakfast; toured Yale University in New Haven, Conn.; ate burgers at Louis' Lunch in New Haven and walked around the downtown area; visited Sleeping Giant State Park in Hamden, Conn.; checked out the clock tower at Quinnipiac University's Mount Carmel campus; took in a breath-taking view from the student center at Quinnipiac's York Hill campus; stopped by the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute; and drove through historic Wethersfield, Conn. It was awesome.
