Packing for my redeye flight to Philly tonight.  One advantage to having my right foot in a cast:  I have 50% fewer socks and shoes to pack!  Yes, the glass is half full!

I’ll never forget this year’s Democratic Caucus Retreat when VP Joe Biden, still reeling from his son’s death from cancer, spoke directly with my friend Rep. Mark Takai (Hawaii) who had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  They embraced a few seconds after this photo was taken, and there was not a dry eye in the house.  I thought immediately of that poignant moment when I heard the sad news today that Congressman Takai has died.  Mark was an incredible thoughtful, likeable guy who was so thrilled to serve in Congress.  Rest in peace my friend.

While El Niño may be partially behind rising temperatures, NASA says greenhouse gases are the main culprit.
