less worldly than anticipated,
but in a good way - kind of like life.
hang in there - only 8 months to go!
Yeah, I've pretty much turned off the politics and world news of late. I still catch little bits - NPR and my browserr homepage. But not enough to get too depressed or pissed (or engaged).
Just listen to the fun stuff on NPR - Car Talk and Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me . . .It's bad here in Michigan, where it looks like we a`re going to have a "do-over" primary in June. O. M. G. - just make it stop!
Sometimes its what the candidates are not saying that concerns me...This link (below) is a video of former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich's response to a question on the War on Terror - what we can expect in the next few years and what we have to do to win it - at the National Press Club. No matter what you think of Gingrich, it is an interesting response. It is not politics as usual. Rather, it is a blunt and chilling answer to a serious question, rarely heard from any public figure. The video is a little old (August 8, 2007), but it is making the rounds now. You may have to cut and paste the link into your Internet browser: http://edition.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/08/08/gingrich/index.html#cnnSTCVideo Here is a link to the corresponding article, which deals more on the road to the White House: http://edition.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/08/08/gingrich/index.html#cnnSTCText
I read the papers, I watch the news. I plain refuse to read the political blogs. They piss me off and then I end up posting some righteous ass remark and regret it....
