Last time I checked, the Second War Between The States had not started, so we're good.
There was a speech last night. I watched some of it. It's mostly ritual -- a nod to current events, a nod to history, and a lot of pushing the President's agenda. If you like him, you liked it. If you don't like him, you didn't.
There's not usually any tea-leaf reading to be done over a State of the Union speech and this one was especially that way. We had all three branches of the Federal government in one room and they all got home okay afterward -- and that, in the broad sweep of things, really is an accomplishment. A low bar? Sure it is. The Fed.gov is supposed to be a plowhorse, not a hedge-jumper.
