Reading and Writing and the Occasional Recipe

Withdrawing from the Race

Thursday, April 7, 2016

We’re months away from the election and already I can’t take it any more. I can feel my level of anger rising with every ratcheting up of the coarse discourse.  I am drawing a personal line.

I’m going on a campaign news blackout. What will I miss?  If past experience is any indicator, I won't miss much.  I’ve got my candidate and if she isn’t on the ballot in November, I’ll vote for the person who comes closest to representing the things I believe in. I won't need to listen in until then.

It’s not going to be easy, but I am taking a personal vow to distance myself from the ranting polluting our environment. I will no longer allow it to pollute my personal environment.  If you hear of anything really substantive or important, let me know. But I’m guessing that won’t happen. Meanwhile, I am going to concentrate on other things.
