It’s coming down to the nitty gritty now, isn’t it? In a little less than a week we’ll know whether we as a nation have been given a little breathing room or whether the OMG MUH DEMOCRACY crowd has more license to keep running us over a fiscal cliff.
It’s going to be interesting. I expect by a week from today, we’ll have a pretty good bead on things, although it may be some time before us Alaskans have an idea who will be representing us in the Imperial City, thanks to the ranked-choice voting stupidity. Maybe now that this election-season mess is over, we can look to getting shut of that stupid idea.

This Week’s Cultural Edification:
Boy howdy, if this ain’t all that far off from Saturday nights when I was a teenager. Brooks & Dunn have produced some great old country music, but I confess Hillbilly Deluxe is one of my favorites. While it’s fun to get some boot-scootin’ boogie going on over the course of a small-town weekend, you just plain can’t beat slick pick’em up trucks. Here, then, is the official video for that tune. Enjoy.
