New Headlines -- Finally

This mornings lead article on Google News was not the debate about the debt ceiling. This morning the lead article was about the weather. Something else over which we mere mortals have no control.

No doubt you have heard about the debt ceiling debate in the US Senate and US Congress. Another battle of the tribes and their warlords is finally over. They've declared a truce until they find something new to battle over and occupy media headlines. We know there will be no peace in the future for these adversaries. They've said so as they signed the peace pact.

Since it isn't good for my health or balance, I haven't been staying too close to the daily drama.

For some humor about the drama over these past weeks, check out Andy's Featured Stories at the Borowitz Report

Suggested reading for the Democrat and Republican tribes and their warlords is this excerpt from an article at Psychology Today.

"Principled negotiation is a strategy that seeks to move both parties away from polarizing and usually entrenched positions, and into the realm of interests. It asks how both parties can get their interests satisfied while keeping their relationship strong. Negotiating well means neither party need feel cheated, manipulated, or taken advantage of."

Not going to happen between these two tribes -- especially a faction of one of the warring parties.
