and now, a word from...

So, some of you are probably thinking, "What's up with all the political stuff? The election's over, and anyway, I came for the fannish stuff/fiction/[fill in the blank]."

The (short) answer is that I've been trying to find my feet as a voting citizen, and some of that happened to spill over into here. However, I think that process is mostly done now, so no need to flee for the hills. No more politics--at least not until the next election. Well, no more real politics. I make no promises concerning the fictional kind.

And for those you who were freaked out by the fake Thomas Paine--well. His views are not entirely (perhaps mostly not) my views. What caught my attention was the bit about regular citizens being more involved in the process of government. And the phone number. Although I'm not sure I will ever summon the courage to actually call Congress. (I freely admit that I am a wimp, especially when it comes to using the phone.)
