ALL POLITICS ARE LOCAL

I have been busy working up my next Plato lecture [more on that a bit later], but today is Primary Day in North Carolina, so Susie and I just voted.  On the ballot?  Candidates for the Democratic Party nominations for Sheriff of Chatham County, Clerk of Court of Chatham County, and U. S. Representative from the 6th CD of NC.  Now, I will be honest.  Sheriff and Clerk of Court are not at the very top of my political to-do list, but if we are to take over the country, Chatham County is as good place as any to start.  Ryan Watts is a very nice twenty-something young man trying to unseat Mark Walker, one of the most right-wing Reps in the Republican Party.  Walker has a usually safe seat, but all things are possible this year, so I have volunteered for campaign and will do my bit.

Stay tuned.

Schadenfreude--Off Topic: It is only fair that those who supported Trump (and still do) are among those who are hurt by his stupid and cruel policies. I get a grim satisfaction from stories like this:

It will be interesting to see what the esteemed voters of West-By-God Virginia do today.

I can just remember what it was like.... when I actually had time to prepare for the classes I teach.
But these days, I have too many classes and too many students to do anything like real preparation.
Oh, yes, and there's too little money.
When I read your blog, I learn about how other people live. And that's one of the benefits of the Internet. All over the world, people can learn about the difference between rich and poor.
