A Break From Politics

It's Holy Week in the Christian tradition -and I personally need to focus on that and forsake politics for a few days.  Sometimes it seems like politics is mankind at its worst.  Having a do-nothing congress with an approval rating as low as the bilge water in an old ship and a president who disappoints at every turn with his ineffective style of leadership does little to get me excited about any 'change' we were promised.

It looks like Romney will be the nominee for the Republicans (I think everybody knows that, especially Newt and Rick) and the G.O.P. "rank and file" is beginning to coalesce around him.  Perhaps that is the answer.  It's still along way to the election in November and I am more concerned with planting shrubs, roses and flowers right now -- because they are tangible things that are not just beautiful, but consistently deliver as promised.

By the way, 2 experts now say that the voice screaming for help the night of the Trayvon Martin shooting was not that of George Zimmerman.  New evidence and opinion seems to emerge on an almost daily basis in this case.  My hope and prayer is for justice to be done and Al Sharpton and his cronies to get out of the way.  Then perhaps the family can begin the process of healing.
