Among the many things that I do not understand in this world it is why people care about politics. [I mean other than as a source for John Stewart’s show material.] I do usually vote because not to seems wrong, but I don’t have any real connection in my mind between the voting process and what actually happens in the world.
Supposedly the world changed yesterday. Nothing really seems different. I am still at the same job, in the same house, same country, same world. Now we just have a different guy who will preempt prime time television every once and a while to tell us what he is doing. Don’t get me wrong, I actually admire this new president of ours and he seems to get IT a bit more than the last guy. What I don’t understand is why people get so emotionally involved. I mean it’s just a civil service job.
