Sleepy Sultry Summer

Congress is leaving town for a five week vacation. Back to School schedules are still four to five weeks away.  The lethargic feeling of heat weighs on both the physical and mental faculties.  Corporate decisions are difficult to implement with staffs at half mast and no wind available.  Traditionally everything in Europe stops while people vacation for the month.  Should we just write off August as a Rip Van Winkle month?

Check out these dog days of August historical events - war, death, riots and hurricanes.  Clearly not a time to go to sleep.
