Free to Be You and Me

 

It’s Election Day, or as my favorite political pundit, Larry Sabato of the University of Virginia, puts it, “Negative Ad Liberation Day.” In Colorado, we have been inundated with political commercials—the only constituency they seem to serve is advertising managers at the local TV stations. However, here’s my two cents: voting is individual and personal, and while the reasons why you voted for who you did may not resonate with me (or further, might seem stupid to me), the most important point is that you voted. And I voted.   Our system is imperfect, without a doubt. Too little choice, deck stacked for incumbents, too much party control, lack of accountability, antiquated rules and customs that don’t reflect today’s America, and too much money spent on campaign ads. But it’s ours; we own the system. And countless citizens have committed their lives to keep it ours. And that’s what makes America exceptional.   Happy Election Day—the most American of days.  

  Road to Boston: Week 2 I believe in climate change, and in general I have been benefitting from it—at least where my training comes in. November 6 and I am going for a run today wearing shorts and a t-shirt. True to Colorado form, snow will return this weekend. I am in my “pre-training training;” I start a 16-week marathon training regimen in December, so I am building up to it. I told my wife this morning, “I don’t think I’ve lost any weight yet, but I am feeling a little lighter.” I decided to give it a few days before testing my theory on the scale.   Prefer to receive more from Les in small doses?
