    down the road just a little way, so the new Congress can deal with it.  An extension of everything current for two weeks would give the new members a chance to get up to speed, at least partly, and only two weeks' exposure to lobbyists.  A week of fast and furious negotiating, with the leadership positions and committee assignments potentially in play at the beginning, might do good things.

    Or bad.

    We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
