On the events calendar for October the Council Business meeting is scheduled for Tuesday Oct. 9. I believe that the usual and customary date is the 2nd Monday of the month unless there were extra-ordinary circumstances. Note; a review of the Council meeting schedule for 2012 shows that Tuesday Oct. 9 ids correct. Will Council President Mapp have a conflict? He did with the Sept. ASS.
Sunday's "60 Minutes" was one of the best apparantly unbiased TV political shows that I have seen in years. I did not watch any of the morning talk shows which were politically oriented. I only wish that tere were aan easily available transcript to read; I trust my eyes more than my ears and memory.
I do not know how others feel; but I find it demeaning for our President to appear on such talk shows as Letterman's and the View; or comedy shows such as Saturday Night Live. To a lesser extent that is applicable to the First Lady. A forum which is acceptable for Lady Gaga should never be the sounding board for the nation's leader.

Today marks the opening of the United Nations sessions and the annual influx of world leaders especially from third world nations who use the meeting as a platform to bash this country and Israel Most of the bombastic talk is for home consumption but some also is designed to create violent reaction in parts of the world. Never-the less, I believe that the UN has been a positive force in the world.
On a negative election note; I feel it is sad that our President would snub the leader of a nation which he proclaims to be our ally in order to not disrupt his election campaign schedule.
