It's the endless election campaigning.
Violence around the globe has become routine.
It's even the conservative media trying to push Monica Lewinsky back on us.
So, at least in my professional and social circles, the dog days of August are starting early. The tired tone we are using is the kind one hears when everyone is trying to just hang on until vacation. One new client alluded to the cruise his family is taking just before school starts. That's a month away.
Mid-week (shocker for someone so imbued with the Protestant work ethic) this week I am going to Mexico for the day.
The question is: If the dog days start in July, will they end in early August?
