Other than in my head there are two places I keep notes for this column. I noticed one of them had a lot of material. Let’s see if I can cover it all today.
Recently a personal matter (more about that below) was tentatively scheduled for April 4th. Immediately that date struck a chord in the back of my mind as having historical significance thanks to U2’s 1984 hit song, Pride (In the Name of Love).
It’s been a few weeks since my last stab at cleaning up my notes and inbox so I’ll dispense with a long intro paragraph. However, the irony that this is set to be published on Groundhog Day does not escape me.
The end of December is traditionally a slow time in American political news. Not in 2022! Therefore, back-to-back catchup articles.
As planned, Thursday morning I voted early. About a week prior to that I printed out a sample ballot and did my research. I didn’t expect to feel comfortable voting for many, if any, Republicans but I still wanted to give everyone on the ballot a look. I was surprised at just how bad many of the GOP candidates were. It’s not a local problem.
