On Politics

Oh, my, I have no idea how to vote. I don't like any of the candidates. Yes, we can certainly use a change--but I don't want a change that's going to be scary either.

Maybe I'll just throw a dart.

I'm never been much for politics. The nicest, most intelligent person who runs for president has to promise to do things for horrible people in order to get elected. Yes, they do and if you don't think so, you're naive. Politics corrupt.

It would be far better if we went back to the early (I mean really early) days when politicians weren't paid for their work--and they actually did something. Just think of all the money that would be saved and there's be money to take care of the country's business.

When you get to be my age you did get to be cynical about such things. I feel a bit the same about global warming. All these movie stars, politicians and other celebrities who are going on and on about what WE should do, while they still have multiple cars, fly places in their own airplanes, live in huge houses that aren't the least bit energy efficient, have more than one of these huge energy using homes, spend money in ways we can't even imagine.

Well, I'll get off my soap box now. Guess I'll just get back to thinking about my next book, how to promote it, and planning to go to my next mystery con.
