Since there is no music news worth mentioning, here’s a brief political comment: Two years ago on Election Day, there was a sense of hope in what could happen, mixed with a dreadful sense of fear, also about what could happen. In the end, miraculously, hope won out. Now, two years later, hope has dwindled as fear and ignorance has become the fuel driving this election. I have no aspirations as to any positive outcomes at the polls, especially on local races. A tidal wave of stupidity is engulfing this country, and there’s no stopping it. That, however, will not deter me from my civic responsibilities, no matter how futile they may seem. I will hold my nose and cast my vote, and then go home and try to forget the outcome. I suggest you do the same.
My name is Tim McMahan, and I approved this message.
