This is what happens when you have too many things to do and so little time. I definitely have some good ideas for post to this blog. However, I’m also now swamped for the past few days not just because of THE JOB but also THE CAMPAIGNS. I have been a political activist with the Democratic Party in NE Ohio for almost two decades and, once again, I’m being sucked into three local races which are in fact very important. I already cast my absentee ballot last month and I know many others who have done the same. However, these last three days are critical in key races and I am doing my part. Despite all my griping about the way things are going, deep down, I’m a bit of an idealist. One must try to be part of the solution. Our constitution is a pretty unique document and, despite its flaws and delusions of grandeur, this country has had a pretty good track record. Maybe that’s why I’m heading out to Lake County today to plant more yard signs. It doesn’t seem much, but it sure doesn’t hurt.
