PhoenixAfter eight months of fervent political discourse, (or, as I've repeatedly lied to myself, a series of stringent exercises to hone my skills as an essayist), I've decided to spruce things up a bit. The template's lighter, I've re-dedicated myself to making the writing tighter, and I even put up a little caricature of my divinely bitchy self.
As the Whitehouse of cards collapses into yet another mess the Dems will patiently clean up, there's always room in this little corner for lefties, leaners, folks on the fence so long they have picket prints on their settin' cheeks, and the Eisenhower-style Republicans of yore. We need to work together to grow this country into something better than the free lunch it's become.
Independence is involving. We have to be there, and want to be there. America evolves because we the people are involved with her direction. When we sit the bench, greed has a field day.
Today I'm declaring my independence from apathy. I'm holding a place in line for you.
