Brief rest earned

E-mail Print PDF

Last week, we urged you to vote, and vote you did.

So, thanks.

And now it’s over, all the debates, the rallies, the interviews, the talking heads, the bloviators, the opinionators and the attack ads.

At least for two years, until the Big Machine starts churning again, revving up for 2016.

But thankfully, at the moment that seems like a long way off. So let us be grateful. Let us breathe. Let us rest.

Let us also continue to urge our elected representatives, new and old, to advance the nation’s business. Blaming this or the other one won’t get the job done.
