I want to apologize to those of you that have been reading this space regularly. I have not been writing as much was I would like to be. There have been some things happening in my personal life that have led to that in some degree, but for the most part, it’s me. I’ve been spending a lot of time observing, listening to people on both sides of the aisle, thinking, and reading. I’ve also been basically in two states lately, either filled with a blinding rage that is both all-consuming and exhausting…or exhausted. It’s been difficult to focus in these periods.
Also, frankly, I don’t like to shout into the void unless I have something new or original to say. There’s a lot of good people out there doing a lot of good reporting on the current political climate. Hopefully you’re reading some of them. If not, take a look at Ezra Klein, Joy Ann Reid, Rachel Maddow, David Cay Johnston, Sopan Deb, Sarah Kendzior, Dan Diamond, and Leah McElrath, to start with.
But, since I have a blog, that makes me a blogger, which means I must write on my blog. So, these are the things I’ve been watching and thinking about. I’ve got a few short hits on a few things that have been happening, and something longer on the election and the reaction to it from many on The Left.
These are my opinions. If you don’t like them, well, I have others.
