  • Bill Maloni says:

    People not living in the DC area and unfamiliar with local rhythms can appreciate how much the federal government shuts down and how little events punch through the normal hot, sleepy July and August
    in this town.

    Even bureaucrats take vacation and when they leave, so do most of the camp followers, lobbyists, lawyers, media, etc., leave with them.

    The presidential campaigns are spicing things up, but that is more rhetoric than substance. When Congress leaves town, a big chunk of the “DC news engine” leaves with it.

    “See you in September” has new meaning
