GUEBERT: Going to school during recess
As the calendar turns to August, Congress turns to recess. What, our federal legislators haven't earned a five-week furlough after 90 or so days of sweaty inaction since January? In preparation for their stopovers in fly-over country, farmers, ranchers and foodies should read "Packing...
