Good news

Brad Miller is my favorite congressman. (In a tie once Larry gets there.) He is doing a beautiful job.

I think it was Mel Watt who told me that the Senate was not a promotion and he could do more for the people of this state and his district in the House. I agree.

They were talking about the Senate on Morning Joe

this a.m. and how many people who have served couldn't wait to get out; even considered it better to be called Governor if they had been in the past. I think it takes a special kind of person and not everyone can do it.

I'm glad to know that Miller will stay in Congress

He's my favorite, too. Since I live in Coble's district, I adopt Congressman who I feel actually represent me. Miller is one, I hope Kissell will be another. I suspect he will. Mel Watt is another favorite in our house. When anything comes on the news about him, the family invariably cheers: "Mel!!" It's like Norm from Cheers.
