Two families joined me in Valencia in having a garage sale on a recent weekend. We placed an ad in the paper and posted signs. Early Saturday morning, we started setting up tables and putting out items for sale. Before the first table was up, cars were circling. Terrific, we thought. We'll have a good turnout.

Regarding Congressman Buck McKeon's recent tele-town hall meeting - I wonder why Sen. Boxer and/or Sen. Feinstein did not schedule town halls during the summer break.
I listened to most of Congressman McKeon's recent tele-town hall meeting. While he and his guest (Congressman Price, R-Ga.) did make some reasonable arguments (which I disagree with), two inexcusable statements were made.
