I let Rep. Buddy Carter have it over the AHCA this week, and no, I don't feel bad about it. We get a little deeper into language in this episode, and how we can actually work together as humans instead of working against each other on "teams" that are hoping for the same thing -- though you wouldn't know it from listening to them.

It's St. Patrick's Day in Savannah! We're one of those places with trolley tours that run 364 days a year. Christmas? Trolleys are running. New Year's? Yep. Thanksgiving? Easter? You bet. St. Patrick's Day? Nope, day off.
So, who was St. Patrick? Why do we wear green? What's with the shamrocks?
I often get confused for a New York Democrat. The truth is, I don't wear team colors, and I'm from Massachusetts. I ramble a bit on where I stand policy-wise and we talk about lifting people up.
If it bleeds, it leads! Why news headlines and shows like "Law and Order" and "CSI" tap into the part of our brain that's scared of everything — and how to slow it down. Major League Baseball, Trump address Congress, Sessions lies to Congress. It's a rambler, folks!
