Now is the Waiting

Waiting for the phone to ring...

I am back in Boston, and have to just wait to hear of Mary Helen's passing.  (Or could there be a miraculous recovery?)

I haven't paid much attention to politics - other than the nine hours I listened to on talk radio driving down the edge of the country - but did hear the comment by a pundit that there could indeed be a third party in our near future.

The Tea Party is intriguing as a national movement; the fact that there is no leader is pretty cool.  So much of the fighting is really about power in Washington, paticularly within the parties themselves.  A third party - what do you think?  Would it eventually become jaded and unproductive, too?

I dread the phone ringing; the world will be lighter when Mary Helen goes.
