As many of you know, I am writing solely about politics and government for the foreseeable future. Some days, I will talk about candidates (like Jed! Bush), other days I will address issues, and most days, I will write about whatever I want and make a clear-in-my-mind connection to politics in order to keep my vow. To you, the people.
I arrived home yesterday and my son raced up:
I was playing basketball...
...and I shot a basket!
You made a basket?
I didn't make a basket, but the ball hit the basket!
And it almost went in?
he breathed hard, and finally cached his breaths.
It didn't! But the ball touched the hoop! Isn't that awesome?!
And high-fived an appropriate level of moderate enthusiasm.
He hit the backboard.
This anecdote nicely illustrates three of my favourite political truths.
