We are in vacation mode at the moment, and we will concentrate on analysis of the ongoing trial.
Due to a recent personal loss in our family, and a disconnection in the DSL line since Feb. 23, 2012, we failed to update for the 24th, 25th and 26th days coverage of the impeachment hearings. We are looking for the online resources to finally close the month of February coverage. We hope to resume soon for the March 12, resumption. Stay tuned!
