MULLINGS/Catching the Fluh
Jan 09,2013

I am good about getting my shots. At my advanced age I was supposed to get a pneumonia shot and a shingles shot, so I got them. I also got a flu shot. I didn't get a flu shot in Tanzania or Kenya. I got it at my Doc's office on K Street so I can only assume it was full strength. Next year, I'm going to ask for super strength

MULLINGS/This 'n That
Dec 10,2012

I am in desperately searching for something to write about that doesn't include the words "fiscal cliff." Maybe we'll just cruise around the net and see what catches our attention. Here's one.

Nov 26,2012

At Andy's Car Wash in Alexandria, you drop your car off, then go inside to pay. A woman and a little girl - about three-and-a-half - were paying ahead of me. It was a cold day, so the little girl was bundled up in the way

MULLINGS/Electoral Collage
Nov 16,2012

The United States Constitution provides for an indirect election of the President. That is, you didn't vote for Barack Obama or Mitt Romney last week; you voted for electors pledged to vote for one or the other. The 12th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (which superseded a large section of Article II, Section 1) suggests says

MULLINGS/Another Election
Oct 30,2012

I've been here for two days preparing for, and actually observing, the Ukrainian parliamentary elections. I was part of the International Observer Mission in that effort. During the day before I hopped on an airplane from Kiev to come down here we were briefed by various

MULLINGS/Obama Gets the Win at Second Debate
Oct 17,2012

Short answer: Obama rebounded strongly in this debate. Romney was prepared and did as well as he did in the first one, but Obama's performance was so much better than last time, he gets the win. Mitt Romney got the first question (from a college student asking about the availability of a job after he graduates).
