Keep Cool and Think Straight

Faced with two unlikeable candidates, don't panic. You're safe voting for the one who has not urged her followers to physically attack people who oppose her.

As for the rest of it, we'll be following the campaigns but meantime let's keep our perspective. I like this item which was forwarded to me by Joel Lage, an artist who lives at 8000 feet on a mountain in New Mexico and is about my age.  Living at 8000 feet, he takes the long view.

As the ever-so-wise Pogo used to say, "There ain't nobody here but us chickens." Except when he was saying, "We have met the enemy and he is us."

All this is not to say that there's no difference between the two candidates. Hitting people makes a big difference, doesn't it? But let's take some time out for a smile.

It may be our last chance for quite a while.
