Some random thoughts:
Who is swayed by robocalls imploring you to vote for their candidate? Obviously, someone, somewhere, thinks this is an effective way to campaign. But seriously, who thinks, “Well, based on the issues, I was planning on voting for Kramden for Governor, but, you know, that robocall completely rocked my world. Go Norton!”? I want names, people!
Maybe I’m being a polly-alan, but I am very encouraged by the fact that people with e-readers are reading more than before. More is good, when it comes to reading.
I’d be much more inclined to enjoy autumn if I didn’t know winter was to follow.
I voted with my 18-year-old son yesterday. Pretty cool!
Just got a GPS unit. On the first trip, about a mile and a half to the grocery store, it would have gotten us lost. Luckily, we switched to the back-up system: our common sense. (I was reminded of the episode of The Office where Michael drives into the lake because the GPS told him to.)
Why is it that I think of the good lines AFTER I’ve completed a draft?
I went to an MWA Chapter dinner meeting last week and heard Gary Noesner speak. He’s a former FBI hostage negotiator (and chief negotiator for ten years), and he was terrific. His book: STALLING FOR TIME.
