This afternoon, one of my secret contacts on Capitol Hill (secret because he likes his current job and doesn’t want to lose it and return to K street) sent me the following message. I think it speaks for itself:
Moments ago, I received official word from the Senate cloakroom, that the Senate Majority Leader is seeking unanimous consent to call up and pass S. Res. 452, â€œdesignating December 13, 2004, as â€˜National Day of the Horse,â€™ and encouraging the people of the United States to be mindful of the contribution of horses to the economy, history, and character of the United States.â€?
In the event any of you are inclined to accuse those of us here at the United States Senate of being afraid to tackle head-on the pressing, weighty issues of our day, bite your tongue.
All I can say, is that it is about time.
