I was driving to the store the other day

and on the way there, I looked at where the old store had been, and it was gone. Funny how a very small town can become a suburb of two major cities. I miss those days, but what lies ahead is also exciting.

I really like your blog. You should update more often!

What lies ahead is not very exciting. Everything after 19th century is quite irrelevant, in my opinion.

Hi!
I am writing to you because you state your age as over 80 so you have a precious historical perspective that others don't have.
Things change with time.
Right now, the difference between a Republican and a Democrat is confusing because they all get major contributions from mega-coporations.
I live in Vermont where we cannot tell the difference at all.
In Vermont, Democratic U.S. Senator Leahy brings into the state millions of federal tax dollars to pay for defense contractors. Is that a Democratic ideal?
In Vermont, Independent U.S. House of Representatives, Bernie Sanders, brings in 5 million dollars to upgrade ski mobile trails so rich people can use fuel for fun while President Bush is asking people to conserve fuel.
In Vermont, Republican U.S. Senator Jim Jeffords quits the Republicans and then says he's not running again.
In Vermont, Democratic Governor Howard Dean vowed to VETO medical marijuana, then left to become DNC Chair, meanwhile, Republican Governor Jim Douglas was elected and he allowed the Medical Marijuana to pass in to law.
I am a 2006 political candidate in Vermont.
I have a website where I express my opinions on issues.
If you have the time and the inclination, I would like to ask you to please "grade" my website,
knowing you have a superb historical perspective,
and tell me, on each issue, if you feel my opinion most likely fits the ideals of a Democrat, Republican, Libertarian or Independent.

In 2004 I ran for both Governor and for U.S. Senate and came in 3rd for both offices.

I'm running for both offices again for 2006.
Sincerely, Cris Ericson

thanks for your enlightening comment on the ned lamont blog. that was a very thoughtful post. After we get the fuck out of the hell hole, will we all sit around and sing kumbaya as the throat when they come to slit our throats?
