It is still Lent, and I while I have come close a few times, I've managed not to talk about politics. This exercise in verbal restraint has taught me a few things that I might never have learned otherwise. For example, before this Lent, I never truly realized how much of what goes on in the world revolves around politics. Possibly because, the government is involved in each of our lives in some way. The media is also involving itself in all forms in the political process. In this country, it's a good thing.
I have stayed informed on all world events, but I have not passed on much of what I have learned. I've also declined in voicing an opinion on those events, weaseling out of it whenever possible. The mess that has been made concerning a certain conservative radio commentator has been of peculiar interest, but giving into my better nature, I've kept mum. If this story keeps going, however, I have a feeling my Easter column will be a sight to behold. Whenever asked about the Presidential race, I always say "I'll guess we'll see". I've been a dull boy, I'm sure. But don't mistake my silence for something it is not. I'm not talking, but I've done a whole heap of listening to make up for it.
