Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating.

- Karl von Clausewitz


Samuel A. Alito Jr. will be confirmed to the United States Supreme Court, even his opponents will concede this, so why all of the posturing?

Remember, politicians are too often failed actors and actresses seeking the limelight, and any time they can find in front of the camera and pose for their “constituents” they will. Yes, our politicians are needy, in search of attention, so they ramble in front of the camera about a nominee whose status is a foregone conclusion.

Perhaps we should give Senators numbers instead of names. If they are really there to serve, it would not be about them, but then who would name a highway after the great number 26.
