Things really important to me

First an apology. My post yesterday on my decision to vote for Warren (which I did at about 9:45 AM) and to contribute to her campaign ($100 online) was my first posting here in more than a month. Some may remember that in mid-November I

Barr Says He May Quit. Really??? [UPD*2: Did Barr Box Himself In?]

It could be a really strange election
