    How’s business?
    That’s a question I often get asked. Now, whether they are asking just as greeting or truly want to know how the newspaper business is going is anyone’s guess.

  • State agenda is already full

    When the General Assembly meets in odd-numbered years, it has a much different schedule than it does in those ending in an even number.
    The meeting time is 30 rather than 60 days, and the first four of those are set aside just to elect legislative leaders and appoint members to committees.  The bulk of our work doesn’t begin until early February, and it effectively ends a little more than a month later.
