Morning Reads for March 28

It’s over. IT IS ALMOST OVER. (The Legislative Session, I mean).

“Springtime” by Ian Tyson. 

  1. John Lewis brags of his F rating from the NRA. 
  2. So does Stacey Abrams. 
  3. Sanford Bishop is apparently one of just four congressional Democrats who gets money from the NRA.

  6. How Sonny is remaking the USDA.

And risk management needs to become a top priority!
