June Thames: Take a drink, leaders

Take a drink, leaders

Who would have imagined that a politician (Sen. Marco Rubio) pausing to take a sip of water during a speech would be so newsworthy? However, it could be a great learning tool. I implore all representatives to stop and take a long cool drink of water. Maybe then all the hot air coming from Washington would evaporate, and our representatives could settle down and do the job they were elected to do. It’s worth a try.
