A Non-Political Blog

When I explain to the rare person who is interested that I have a blog, I am quick to point out that it is not political. That limitation, of course, is part of what leads to the "O" comments for most of my entries.

Well, I just finished watching a large chunk of the New England primary Democratic debates. I could make observations on styles of rhetoric...as I'm a word watcher....but I won't...

I will offer only one remark that I felt was important for my 15-year-old to hear: It began with the dangerous: "When I was your age..."

"When I was your age, I could only dream that among the candidates would be such diversity."
