OK, raise your hand if you watched the latest Republican debate on CNN.
Sorry. I can't see your hands, so you may as well put it down if you raised it. If you did watch it, however, bravo (or brava, depending on your sex.) You are one of the informed. You took the time to educate yourself about some of the choices available to you in upcoming elections. Even though you can't see my hands, I'm applauding you.
If you didn't watch it, you might have a very good reason. All sorts of things could have been going on in your life that were more important, such as something to do with your family or, perhaps, odd working hours. If, however, you didn't watch it because you've already made up your mind at this very early stage of things, then you might be one of the people I somewhat take to task in my latest Boston Herald column.
In said column - which you can find by clicking onto this easily indentifiable differently colored text - I give some opinions. It is, after all, a column on the op-ed pages. I would like to point out, though, that I only give my opinion two or three times. The rest of it is opinions of others. I tell you this because you may get additional entertainment from any comments taking me to task for some of the opinions expressed by others. I expect there could be a reader or two doing that.
Speaking of comments, I hope you'll make one there (or, bless your beautiful soul, via an actual letter to the editor, in which case you will have a solid invite to the party wherein I celebrate my Pulitzer - perhaps some time in 2034 - and where there will be free corn dogs, so you can obviously see how much I value your words on my behalf!)
Be that as it may - and I've found it usually is - I thank you for coming here, I thank you for reading, and if I end up offending you via my column somehow, I apologize (but insincerely.)
Soon, with more better stuff.
