I applaud the members of this site who are usually pretty good at refraining from political commentary, as tempting as it often is, but every once in a while I see something that really irks me. Maybe I'm flying solo here, or maybe you think I'm being hypersensitive, but every political comment I've read on this site leans in one direction, while I unabashedly lean the other. Until now, I've resisted my instinct to respond in kind because I don't want to see this site turn into one of the plethora of existing sites that have devolved into virtual foghorns, blasting out non-constructive, vitriolic rhetoric that unnecessarily exasperates the country's political divide. I imagine others feel the same and have similarly decided to keep quiet. But my life is deluged with enough legal/political discussion/debate as it is, and the Podium Cafe is one place I visit regularly to escape all that ugliness and have some fun.
So please folks, don't ruin that.
Okay, excoriate away.
