Give 'em all a time-out

Hard-working Americans who need a little more time off:

House leaders are considering adjourning as early as the end of this week, which would give lawmakers five and a half weeks to campaign before the Nov. 2 election but could also leave them exposed to allegations that they didn't finish their work in Washington.

I'm surprised some of them are even willing to show their faces in their districts, let alone risk five and a half weeks of exposure. On the other hand, we should all applaud the possibility that they don't "finish their work."
