This will be a brief update, because I am approaching two finish lines: the Presidential election and ASK NOT.
Today I began work on the final chapter of ASK NOT, but will interrupt that tomorrow to work all day at the local Obama campaign office with Barb. I am grateful to my friends, fans, readers, or whatever else brings you here, that we haven’t descended into anything overtly political. It’s tough, feeling as deeply as I do about this particular election, keeping it to myself (and I haven’t completely succeeded). It’s bad for business to alienate any of your readers, and I hope I haven’t.
I was more overt about my position over at Facebook, and one fan used my post to attack the President and make what struck me as a strident case for the other candidate. That’s the problem with opening this can of worms: most of us have long since made up our minds, for whatever reason. Obama and Romney supporters arguing is a colossal waste of time. I only used Facebook to try to convince those independents and fence sitters why I feel – and think – as I do.
Remember what Al Capone said to his people each election day: “Vote early and vote often.”
