In recent years, for me, the annual State Of The Union (SOTU) is mere background music to the annual appearance of US Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Houston, and so it was this year, again.
So long as she appears, I know in my heart of hearts that the Republic still is sucking air.
The experiment of democracy continues. OK. Hit the mute button now.
Here, in photos above and to the left, the congresswoman gets some pre-speech sugar from President Obama.
Hopefully, we and the Republic will still be around next year to report on the SOTU and Ms. Jackson Lee again.
That is all.
