Foggy as all get-out out doors. Foggier still on my TV. National politics used to be easy to comment on; now I just want to point at it and shrug.
At the state level, our Governor gave the yearly State of the State speech last evening. It looks like we're doing better than the neighboring states in terms of unemployment (three percent-ish), job growth, solvency of the state government and other metrics -- but when two of the neighboring states are Illinois and Michigan, looking better by comparison is kind of playing on the "easy" setting. Still, the state's doing well and more people are moving here than moving away, so that's good news.
