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.
