Making like the Capitol

It is recess around the Capitol.  So among other things this week I don't get to gloat in front of my former colleagues when they show up for a meeting in suits and ties and I can roll in wearing a polo, blazer and pair of skinny jeans.   But this too shall pass.

It also means that the flow of stories out of Sacramento will be a bit slower than normal. Which makes it a good week for politicos to put on their calendar every year.  Reporters still need to fill those column inches.  So if you have a story that normally wouldn't make the cut, good time to give it another push.  Or if you have some little negative story that normally would be on page A-12, be prepared for it to be on page A-2 with a banner headline.
