First really solidly cold night here. Went out to have a cup of tea on the walkway and found everything with a light coating of ice. Another winter approaches.
And the four year cycle of government grinds on in the last week of this endless campaign. As a Democrat, of course, I watch the persistence of good news in the polls with a superstitious disbelief, sure that as soon as I turn my back they will all shuffle numbers around and we'll have lost again. I stare at the thin blue line of the Pollster.com composite obsessively, trying to make it hover above the 50% mark by sheer force of will.
And, of course, if Senator Obama manages to make it through the election, we still have clowns like these to worry about.
I am not a person of faith. I do not pray. I wish I could now. If you can, please do.
Good Night, oh you handful of friends who tolerate my pompous and self-important prose
And Good Luck.
