Some of you may have wondered where my "politically-themed" posts went. Well . . . I deleted 'em. Although I don't regret anything I wrote, and though there's that disclaimer over to the right, I've decided to let the professionals take care of the political commentary and analysis (or ranting and raving) for me. Since this whole political season is showing every sign of being stranger than Britney Spears, I'll reserve my ideas and impressions for private conversations.
