Yesterday the old anger took hold a little bit due to a certain Harry Reid/Chris Dodd/Blanche Lincoln situation. A better mood prevails today, because Reid caved to Dodd and pulled the FISA bill. Not our issue, but rock on Chris Dodd.
As is fairly obvious, there's been a lot of anger here over this farm bill fiasco. And that's cool, and I'm sure we'll have more to express. But we can't always be angry, even if we try. Yesterday I was going through the old RSS reader, which was a little backed up, and the anger just dissipated instantly. Why, you may ask? I'll tell you. Because Walter Jeffries has the cutest damn pigs in the whole world. Even for us jaded, cynical observers, it is impossible to remain angry while looking at pictures of these pigs.
So if you're in need of a quick happiness fix, let me tell you what. Head over to the Sugar Mountain Farm Blog and take a look at these pigs. It's like taking the cure. All your problems will be solved, and you'll learn something too. Here's some direct links to the best posts with pictures:
