On my last blog, I posted a short story concerning Hobbes, my alter ego, and I working in the Romney campaign, here in Castle Rock. Not much of a response, at least in the comments, but as all of you know who have blogs, there is a "stat" counter which tells the blogger how many views and comments. The only thing that keeps me writing is the "views" counter, which shows me some people do read the blog, all over the world. But fashion seems to win over politics: H and M blog, 50 views; Romney blog, 9 views.
I am saddened that more of us don't discuss politics, underline "discuss." I have this fantasy of myself, younger of course, sitting in some cafe in lets say, Paris, wearing a beautifully cut suit, arguing politics, American and French, in impeccable French. What fun to have a real discussion, not just the hardened views on either side.
I do understand people's reluctance to be public about anything in this age of anything goes. So, thank you to all of you who just "view."
