Situational Analysis – February 10, 2021

Welcome to Wednesday. Today is National Cream Cheese Brownie Day and National Umbrella Day. Celebrate accordingly.

Most of the national news yesterday focused on the Senate trial of Donald Trump, impeached for a second time in January. The US Senate voted that the trial could proceed, with 56 Senators voting aye and 44 – all Republican – voting no. Here at home, the state legislature is in full swing here at the mid-point of the legislative session. As a reminder, if you want to watch any of the committee hearings or floor debate, go to to tune in.

If you only have time for one thing today: Laughter is the best medicine, they say, and so, you simply must watch this video of an attorney presenting to the court as a cat. A sad kitten, to be precise. “I’m here live,” he says, as the kitten’s mouth moves. “I’m not a cat.” I laughed until I cried.
