There's some concern here at the Lodge about China's recently announced one-dog policy.
Ruth and Lola ponder this development. What if it happened here?
Ruth: Pick me! I'm really cute and extremely well educated. I don't take up much space. And I eat a lot less than she does.
Lola: Get over yourself! I'm beautiful and graceful and a superior guard dog. I'm 14 years young, and I've lived here a dozen years.
I told them not to worry.
Just received an email from a British Library staffer addressed "Dear Colleague," containing exactly the news I hoped for. My anxiety is eased. I am content. My love for the BL knows no bounds.
Something I forgot to mention: on Wednesday, I agreed to co-sponsor a House bill.
Yesterday I was contacted by a newspaper reporter and gave quote on the race for House Speaker. A breaking development probably made my comments irrelevent, because today's edition is an MEP-free zone.
Last night was so hot and muggy and humid and rainy, it felt like summer. Big, big change coming....later today.
