Legend of the pink pigeon
By Byron McNutt

THE AMERICAN people can’t catch a break. The political dysfunction in Washington never seems to take a time-out. It’s no wonder the public confidence in our national leaders is at historic lows and the approval ratings for congress and the president are declining.

Look at the challenges facing them now. There’s diplomatic and military negotiations with Syria and Iran, Republicans are trying to defund the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), there’s an on-going threat of a government shutdown, the nation’s debt ceiling may not be raised putting us into default, and no one knows what may happen to the struggling economy when the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing program begins tapering.

Political fighting is here to stay. What will it take to end
