This is Son #2, who is now 6. He's the sensitive one, the artist, highly independent, and a vocal critic of the current administration in Washington. Upon seeing a replay of Bush's State of the Union Address on the morning news he asked, "Daddy, why is George Bush such a bad man?" How does one explain to a six-year old the dangerous results of combining ignorance with malevolence? And forget trying to explain how the Republican party has become America's equivalent to the 2oth century's fascists.
Turning 43 tomorrow, and although it's not milestone, I have a touch of melancholia today. Ruminating on some of the issues raised in my "Whistlin' Dixie" post and might add more to that later.
