My attention has been so scattered lately, it has been hard to settle down to blog. We have been glued to MSNBC and other news outlets for news on the economy and the election campaigns. Plus, the Red Sox season is winding down, while the Patriots are winding up. Tom Brady is gone, which makes watching the Pats a much more stressful exercise. I’m rehearsing for Steel Magnolias…learning lines is always an adventure. Plus, my community theater group is furiously busy mounting the first show of the 2008-2009 season (Dracula, which opens on Halloween), which means I am furiously working on the program, plus feeling guilty because I should be selling ads and selling ads is what I am WORST at!
Work is so quiet…I love working with my solo practitioner attorney, but real estate conveyancing is a dismal business right now…we’ll be ready when business picks up again, but it is really dreary these days.
I have very strong personal feelings about the candidates, but I usually keep them to myself. Right now, though, I cannot restrain myself. Sarah Palin seems like a smart, capable young woman, but OHMYGOSH, she is not ready to be Vice President or, heaven forefend, PRESIDENT. Her interview with Katie Couric last night was just the most recent and glaring evidence of someone in the wrong place at the wrong time. How can we not be the laughingstock of the world? John McCain is, at least, a respected war veteran, former POW, long-term Senator. I may not agree with his politics, but he is a respectable option. But there is no way that I could EVER vote for him with Sarah Palin as second in line to the Presidency. And the saddest part is that doesn’t even touch on how wrong I find her politics and her beliefs. Okay, end of rant.
