Civil War

My library runs a lot of programs, and they are all pretty popular. Some are so popular that people are turned away at the doors. So it was a surprise to see that one of our programs has been cancelled for lack of interest. The program was called "Can We Bridge the Divide" and it was a workshop to bring red-leaning (conservative) and blue-leaning (liberal) people together. But only one person from one side signed up. So it had to be cancelled.

Mark my words, soon there will be blood in the streets.

But don't worry, you can take refuge in the library. We are neutral. You will be safe here.

Unless the wrong side wins. At which point we are traditionally burned to the ground.


  1. Wow. If that doesn't sum up the state of politics in our communities...

    1. Indeed.

      But boy I really hate when they burn down the libraries!!

  2. I hope that - in the future - marking your words here will have been in vain.

    1. I can see this, but am too distracted by the excitement of having my words marked!


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
