Teachers are predictable sometimes. So are former activists. It only took me 15 minutes to begin to consider JOINING the local political activists when chatting with one of the mucky mucks in the Democratic Party the other day. Being a part of something.....
I don't want to commit to anything right now. I'm REALLY retired, now.
I do want to maintain this space. I do get a few ideas and I like to respond to what I read. Telling tales about the bipolar disorder roller coaster is important to me, as well.
I like to be informed. In fact, twice today there was something on cable news that I had already read about online. I even had the Pat Boone story up on my site before it was posted on one of the major sites that I visit every day. I like that.
Not all of my daily reads are "reliable". One blog's staff writer stated that Lou Dobbs was a racist. I've watched him enough to believe otherwise. Yes, his anti-illegal immigration rantings are strident, but sincere. Lou isn't racist, he is a pitchfork patriot. Watch out for that torch!
Read and think for yourself.
Just do it. Stay informed. Be vigilant.
Join with others for support and action if you are so inclined. The important thing is to stay on top of current events. We live in interesting times.
