"Equitable" - dealing fairly and equally with all concerned.
That's the definition that Webster provides for the word.
It is also the word I see from my LA apartment window as it crowns a nearby office tower, framed by these majestic twin palms.
Right now I am feeling that our fractured Congress has not been very 'equitable' in D.C. as they finalized their down-to-the-wire passage of the US Debt ceiling legislation debacle.
There is little that is equitable, I fear, in the final deal; just a greater divide between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots.'
Something smells rotten in the District, methinks.
