Perhaps that's a sign that I really am "inside-the-Beltway," that I've been here so damn long that Admiral Stockdale's immortal words seem appropriate (although for a while, I had let my mistyped "Why I am here?" remain online. Embarrassing, very embarrassing).
Living here for an extended period, it's hard for your life not to become imbued with politics. Every issue is boiled down in the Washington Post to GOP v Democrats (I'm the latter, btw -- not a member of any organized party, etc.).
[The rest of this is irrelevant, but I stuck the link to Vanishing Point in there, so I'm not going to delete all of it.]
Should we check it out and publicize that information, since we're a blog and there are no limitations, because we want to feel like Barry Newman in Vanishing Point, hurtling toward the edge while being counseled by a blind DJ?
