Why are we here?

Last night at midnight, we adjourned and then re-convened for the new day (Monday, September 17) at 12:01 a.m. They put the tax vote on the board, everyone registered their vote as usual. We were then told we could go home if we wanted and return by noon today. We returned faithfully at noon. Nothing. We caucused at 2:00 p.m.

The Dems then came to the podium at 3:00 p.m., cleared the board (giving up on the tax vote) and announced we were "at ease" until 5:00 p.m. What a joke. We hadn't done ANYTHING yet, so why did we need a recess? It is now 7:50 p.m. Still nothing. Haven't even seen Speaker Dillon, Floor Leader Tobocman or Pro-Temp Sak in hours, if at all today.

We are all just sitting around, mulling, blogging, talking, reading, corresponding, and generally going stir crazy. I think if something does not happen soon, I might just hit the door and go home for a good night's sleep.
