Every time I swear to myself I won't watch until the carnage is over but each time I'm drawn inexorably back in to the insanity. By which I mean the elections. No matter how hard I try I'm find myself watching and reading things I had hoped to avoid.
In an earlier life I was involved in local politics and my degree's in public administration. I used to swim in this stuff, I absolutely loved it. Then I sort of got over it, but every November I find myself caught up all over again. I read polls, political magazines, watch talking heads. I'm a totally relapsed junkie.
What it means for this blog is I don't expect to do much for the next two weeks. Then, when the hurly burly's done, I can return to a nice normal life of reading and writing about plain simple heroic fantasy.
