What sucks about working in politics is that whenever I think I've gotten just cynical enough to move on, some stranger restores my faith in democracy.

Time to find a new place to hang my hat.

Radio silence lifted

I've been gone for a while, cuz I was tryin' to get a piece o' that Ol' Time Change some guy been preachin' 'bout.

It didn't take.

Now I'm (trying to get) back in the saddle. I'm still in California with my signature California-induced sinus issues. Despite my illness, my real problem is depression. I did not think I would take this defeat so hard.

For two months, I've been manipulating my own mood and emotions. The price is a badly misused psyche.
