Stop And Smell The Roses

I've grown weary of what seems like an unending barrage of depressing news - the liberals' war on women, the liberals' war on racial coexistence, the liberals' war on the economy, the liberals' war on freedom of religion, the liberals' war on ... well, you get the idea.

So last night was a welcome respite. The weather here was enjoyable  -- cool, breezy, clouds scudding across the sky -- just right for sitting outside with my wife and sharing a bottle of wine. Then inside to a nice meal and a screening of Casblanca on Turner Classic Movies. What a truly fabulous movie.

And what a truly fabulous night. Just what was needed to refresh one's outlook on life.

The next several months are going to be dominated by nasty, vicious politics. It's going to be very important to maintain some sort of balanced perspective.

Nights like this one help...

Replace months with weeks and you have just described our local council and school board elections.
