Gentle readers, I haven’t forgotten you.
This is the busiest part of my year, and I apologize for my tardiness in updating. Twice a week updates will return shortly.
That said, tomorrow’s a vital day for the United States. If you live there, please vote. You know my thoughts on the matter, and you know that we can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good. There’s a lot to like in these candidates, even if you disagree with them on several points. If you can’t stand the two major candidates, vote third party instead of skipping the election entirely – if there are enough people like you, there’s no reason why the United States couldn’t become a multiparty nation.
Express yourself. Vote for the direction you want the country to go in, not necessarily for the person who promises everything. This is how leadership works: making the best decision we can given the limitations of the situation.
Now go; civic duty calls.
