Allow me to get on my soapbox for a minute.
Last night was the first of a series of Presidential Debates. This morning half the pundits are declaring Obama the winner, then pundits on the other side declare Romney the winner.
I know I am very happy with my take on the event. See last night I made the decision to skip the debate and watch the Yankees game. I think it was the right choice for both my mind and soul.
The debates and politics in general drive me nuts with their over simplification of the issues.
Funding of the arts is a very important piece of our society. Expansion of the mind and creativity go hand in hand with advancement of technology, the economy, medicine, etc…
Last night that very important and complex topic was reduced to, “I like Big Bird.”
The topic can’t be a simple lets cut funding or don’t cut funding. No real issues are black and white. But that’s all we get, it’s either pro this or anti that.
It’s truly a disservice to us all.
Now the Yankees buttkicking of the Red Sox was as black and white as it gets!
OK, back to cards now.
