Once again, I need to thank Georg for keeping the home fires burning here.
Now that the 104th Legislature has ended (elections this fall will mean at least 11 new senators--maybe more--will be elected for the 105th Legislature), I have many things to talk about.
My interim (between now and next January) will be spent working on a manuscript--sort of a political history of one policy within the Nebraska Legislature (more on that later); participating in interim studies for committees I sit on; planning legislation for next year; trying to reacquaint myself with my children (and get "senior pictures" set up for our daughter, who will graduate next year); taking a one-week family vacation with all of my siblings and most of their families; and possibly (still in discussions) teaching a couple of classes for local private college in the fall/winter terms that run from late August till right before Christmas.
I won't write a lot, and I will try to couch my comments about things locally in such a way as to not do irreparable damage to my political career, but there are some things which might be of some interest to those who read this blog.
I'll start writing in the next week or two, but at this point, really just wanted to check in, and reacquaint myself to the readers.
