As Frasier Crane Says, I Love Opera And I Vote

Replace “Opera” with “The Monkees ” and I feel just like Frasier.

While the thought of having yet another election year upon us fills me with dismay, I am thankful for two things.

One, I don’t get television, so I can pretty well avoid much of the hostility and lies that permeate American politics. I don’t mind politicians being hostile and lying. It’s the (so-called) journalists and *&^$#@!! relentless commentators that repel me.

Two, I get to vote. Small though my voice may be, I have a say in the outcome, a rare privilege in much of the world. I can't wait.
