Saturday’s soapbox is yours to use as you will – within the bounds of decency and absence of defamation. You’re welcome to look back or forward, discuss issues of the moment, to pontificate, ponder or point us to something of interest, to educate, elucidate or entertain, amuse, bemuse or simply muse, but not abuse.
Just because you do not take an interest in politics, doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you. – Pericles.
And since it’s election day, another thought:
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard – H.L. Mencken
Please note that electoral law prohibits any electioneering on election day. That might seem silly when voting opened 12 days ago, but it is the law. Please respect it.
