Living in Washington where the “raising debt ceiling story” has unfolded like a serial version of Greek tragedy in our daily local news, we can appreciate the perspective of this article in the Wall Street Journal by John Paul Newport.  Listening to the daily bickering and grandstanding by our elected officials makes you want to put them in the center arena with the lions and work out their issues like real men.  Or maybe a proper game of golf with impeachment for the losers would be appropriate.

Anyway, enjoy John’s article on why “from compromise to optimism, the course offers a respite from factions and committees”.
