I immediately tune out political comment that isn’t measured and carefully thought out. Spin is spin. Comment for the sake of comment is all about face time. The last thing the world needs now is a bunch of wanna-bees pushing their faces and mouths in front of the camera for the sake of face time. I am sorry, but I seem to find the Right most guilty of this. They seem to have spent too much time watching “The Apprentice,” and they want the attention of Trump and his ill-begotten base. I wish the media would stop giving them a stage. They have nothing to add, but lots to detract.

I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy. View more posts
