Abandon Text!

W. H. Auden once said: "Poems are not finished; they are abandoned." I have been abandoning writing projects for many years, since only the pressure of deadline and high expectations ever got me to finish, or even start, anything of merit. This blog is an attempt to create a more consistent, self-directed writing habit. Hopefully a direction and voice will emerge.

When "all or nothing" equals "nothing"

So, Lieberman lost. A Democratic icon falls to a billionaire with no political experience. Those no-good Republicans always used big money instead of ideas, it's a crying . . . .

Oh, wait a minute. Lieberman lost to another Democrat? (I mean, if a billionaire businessman with no political experience can be considered a Democrat in the strictest sense of the word . . . ) Oh.
So, let me get this straight. The Republicans are in disarray, lots of scandals, lots of discontent over the war . . . and the Democrats are splitting into angry factions over the war . . . and MoveOn.org thinks this is a good thing because . . . ?
