I have felt like there's a void in my life lately. When I turn on the TV, I've been surprised to see ads for household cleaners, cereal and toys instead of suits (or rolled up sleeves) telling me how horrible candidate A will be for America/Pennsylvania/Centre County and how candidate B is the only answer, but will only share it if elected. My mailbox is a bit lonelier lately, the shiny, oversize post cards no longer fill it. In the past 2 weeks, neither Chelsea Clinton, Jay Paterno, Sarah Palin, Michelle Obama or Scott Conklin have called & left messages. I feel like I've been dumped. What?!?! No thank you cards from the winners? No sympathy cards regarding those I supported who lost? The nerve!

Which, I guess, is ok, considering I'd rather our elected representatives spend their time putting us on the right track instead of making personal calls to each of us to thank us for hiring them. read more
