Gratuitous Post-Nashville Observation

Debate? Debate?

I spent a cool, crisp, glorious October evening yesterday watching the eldest Llama-ette's softball team (and hemi-demi-semi-coaching it) play with pure joy and verve, whaling on their rival like a pack of ten year old Sawx.

I certainly wasn't going to go home after that and kill the buzz.

So if you want gen-u-ine post-debate reax, you're going to need to ask LMC or Gary or even, if you're feeling lucky, Steve-O.

The same here in Nashville, plus we are getting our roads back. They haven't been blocked and diverted so much since Al Gore used to fly in when he was VP.

After my aikido practice I didn't feel like pouring myself a stiff drink to watch the debate. And the only way I could face the fact that our next president is going to be either McCain or Obama is with a stiff drink.

I was glad yesterday that I had moved to the other side of town, since we used to live right in the area where the debate was held. Otherwise, I flipped on the TV long enough to make sure I didn't see anyone I knew and then turned it back off so that I could read a book. I want to see a real debate some day, these media productions certainly aren't that and the "town hall" is the worst of all.

I was working on War College stuff--Colin Powell's taped lecture was a heck of a lot more interesting.
