The House adjourned at 1:04 a.m. this morning, and then the rains came. A deluge flooded the city, tornado warnings surrounded the area, fires and street closures bedeviled this morning’s commuters.
We worried about a post-adjournment apocalypse, but fortunately had Bad Religion’s new CD at the office. Greg Graffin was never more reassuring:
Rain fell like judgment
Across my windowpane
Said it fell like judgment
But it was only rain
Phew. That’s right…probably.
The House returns at 2 p.m., November 15, after facing the judgment of the voters. And this time, it won’t just be precipitation.
P.S. The song is “Only Rain,” best cut on the album, “Dissent of Man,” which is unusually poppy for Bad Religion.
