SATURDAY POTPOURRI




This is truly the year of March Madness, The term which referred to the NCAA Basketball tournament has lived up to its name on its first two days, So many odds on favorites have fallen that according to all reports no one in the major fan groups has a perfect bracket left.

Nationally in the field of politics the Republicans are acting like chickens without heads. Once again irrational political positions by Republican Senators will help defeat many running for reelection, and the House is again up for its biannual reformation.
