If everyone in America were to do politically what I have done, we would be in good shape. It is remarkable how little comfort that gives me.

I am beginning to think there is a decent chance that the Democrats will pick up several seats in the Senate. If they can; against all the odds, hang on to the House perhaps I will be able to deal more successfully with my Parkinson's disease (and do not imagine these two things are unconnected!)
