Silly season

Well, here it is election season in Nevada County and the letters to the editor are more fun than “I Love Lucy” reruns.

According to the liberals, George Bush is the corporate satan and Mickey Moore is god. They will do anything to oust GW so they can sail on to a peaceful Marxist state, sing and dance in the park, wait for another government giveaway and no military.

Meanwhile, across town, the self-righteous right wants “flip flop and fly” John Kerry on the first swift boat out of town. He could be a real threat to life in a fortified ivory tower with a fascist police state to protect one’s portfolio from an attack of West Nile, or even worse, a liberal living next door.

As for me, I’ll try to take care of my family, mind my own business, have a beer and laugh with good friends, both left and right, and go land-speed racing.
