Current Events?

Some of you have asked if we keep up with the NEWS. Of course, we do. If we have internet availability, we peruse the NY Times online; if not, we may listen to NPR on the radio. Many campgrounds sell local newspapers -- which I find interesting in and of themselves -- which have a national section, and we watch the evening news on our TV when cable is available.

Politics have not been mentioned here. Certainly not because we don't have any opinions. Many of you already know what they are -- what we feel strongly about, what we think, and how cynical yet liberal we can be.

But I can't pass up the opportunity to comment about "the other woman." I think she is a fascinating enigma, and represents a wonderful mix of american ideals and myths. It's just too bad that she is being taken seriously as a possible commander-in-chief.

Via email I have received some more articulate analyses of her candidacy. Most notably ones written by Gloria Steinem and Eve Ensler. Also one that suggests we all contribute to Planned Parenthood in the name of Sarah Palin.
Unfortunately, I do not have web links for these. If you would like a copy of any or all of these, please request via email ( Comments here are also invited.
