red moon rising

This weekend, a blood-red full moon (the Corn Moon, and not the popular Harvest Moon this year) rose almost due east, as is customary in March and September. Standing near the Washington Monument, the moon rose over the Senate side of the U.S. Capitol on 9/5. If you believe in omens, Congress returns to work on Tuesday, and the ongoing and over-pressurized health care debate will consume the legislature this fall.

Hopefully, it won’t be a bloodbath. But a whole bunch of people are coming to DC next weekend…
