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.
