Something that Matters in Washington

WITH THE POSSIBLE exception of the occasional recess appointment, nothing of consequence happens in Washington during the month of December. To be quite honest, nothing of conseqence will happen in this town until the State of the Union later this month -- and calling that something of conseqence may be stretch.

But this year things will be different. This year, for the first time since 1999 and only the second time since 1992, the Redskins have made the playoffs. After Sunday's win (it wasn't exactly pretty) over the Eagles, Washington secured the final playoff spot in the NFC. So now those of us who live in Washington full time (uh, uh, uh...not so fast you members of Congress) will have something to keep us occupied for at least one week.

And we couldn't be happier. Not sure if the Skins will reach the Super Bowl (probably not!), but with a 10-2 record this year against the NFC, we're not ruling it out.
