• The new Congress sworn in last week in Washington is the most diverse ever, with membership gains by women, minorities and gays. In addition, the House will have its first Hindu member, its first female combat veterans and its first openly bi-sexual member. The Senate will have its first Buddhist. And, of course, Tim Scott of South Carolina becomes the only African-American in the Senate. We hope all the new officials will do a better job of leading this country than those they join in Washington.

A friend of mine recently commented about his 30-pound overweight problem, "You know, Teal, I looked down at my waist and realized the pounds had just crept up on me over the years." That's the nature of trends. Some develop slowly while some others develop quicker and become more noticeable.
