God, I wish there could be a referee in this country that could blow his whistle and call a time out so we could sit down together and atually try to solve some problems. The solutions I am wishing for are those that would fix problems and help people. I am not looking to cut taxes or find a way to get me more guns. I am looking for ways to help Americans stay safe and healthy and keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. Call this socialism if you like, I really don’t give a damn what you call me, I never did. I care about people, period.
The referee should say, “If you are not here to help solve problems, then step away from the table and make room for somebody that is. And never mind all your political horseshit, this is about helping all of us, not just you.”

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.
