Now is the Waiting
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.
