This is my last column for the year and what a year it has been. There’s much to celebrate — the economy and the Nats— and seemingly, just as much to commiserate about — impeachment and the Redskins. The nation’s capital is bright with holiday lights, but I can’t honestly say the same about the spirit of the city.
The holidays are supposed to be a time of peace on earth and goodwill to all, yet here we are as a nation in the midst of a brutal impeachment process promoted by a frenzied media, more divided along partisan lines than ever. Goodwill seems evermore in short supply.
