I continue to uphold the TV-news ban, but I don’t consider it an infraction if I watch our local news stations and I do read our local newspaper. The midterm election in our burg is all about local, city/county council offices, school board, sheriff, some state reps, etc. Our congressman is up for rel-election, too, but our district has been so effectively gerrymandered that it’s not like a real election. With the current group of folks running, it seems to me like our ballots are going to resemble a circus program.
But you know what? I’m going to go vote anyway.
You should, too—even if you don’t vote it my way. It will make you feel better.
And we all win.
