As the election approaches, I am afraid, all of us are getting testy, myself more than most. Let us all take a deep breath and remember that none of us is the enemy. A world in which the spectrum of political opinions exhibited by the American electorate roughly matched the range of opinions expressed on this blog by myself and commentators would be my dream world.
I am off to spend several hours handing out Democratic Party cheat sheets [lists of candidates and ballot initiatives with a guide how to vote] at an early voting station. Each of us must find his or her own way to survive these times, but whatever our disagreements with one another, you are all my comrades.
