I Will Be Scarce for the Next Two Weeks

I will be living at the playhouse until the show opens, so I won't be on as much.

Meanwhile, here are your choices for tomorrow's election:

The Democrats, with their "Yes we can [and we really mean it this time]" repackaged 2008 campaign.

The Republicans, with their "Pledge to America" repackaged more-of-what-got-us-into-this-mess-in-the-first-place. However, they also have:

The repackaged religious theocrats with their "defend the Constitution [unless a ruling conflicts with my traditional family values]," also known as the Tea Party.

Oh, wait - you thought that was something new? It's not. They just did a better job of repackaging the old stuff they've been pushing for years and making it look shiny.

The fact that it looks so good is a sad testament to the sorry state of affairs.

Whoever's in office, their first priority is to themselves. Anything we want, we have to push for.

That said, I think I'll take the repackaged Democrats. Apathy is not an option, unless you really want Sharron Angle and her ilk in Congress.

Good luck with the play!

I know what you mean about the elections. I sent in my absentee ballot last week, and I had a difficult time deciding who to vote for. There's so much crap out there, it was difficult to find unbiased information so I could make a somewhat informed decision. I did my part; now I guess the only thing left is to hope for the best.

I know. It's tough to make a decision. Candidates' websites are where I go to at least find out what they say they stand for.

Thankfully, I don't watch TV, and haven't had to endure the crazy political commercials.

Thanks! It's a really fun show. We have the cutest dog in the cast. A terrier with one ear that flops down. :)
