What do you write in a blog when you feel like you have nothing to say. I generally don't write just because I have a blog; I like to write about things that might have some interest for somebody.
So, here I am in the process of breaking my own rule. Why? Because it brings to mind a good story.
I can't remember the year that the late Senator Edmund Muskie (D-Maine) was running for President in the primaries. Somewhere along the way, probably in New Hampshire, an energetic young TV reporter decided to interview Muskie's mother. He commented on the fact that she seemed to be a woman of few words and then asked her why she didn't talk more about the campaign and her son and his opponents, etc. Muskie's mother thought for a moment and then replied, "I only speak when it improves on silence."
It's a lesson we all should take to heart. Have a nice day.
