Early voting started yesterday and I happily obliged this afternoon - what a relief to get it crossed off the list! Now, if we could just get rid of all of the televised political advertisements...this year has been particularly back-biting, negative, and profuse. Though I wasn't always happy with any of the vying candidates, I applaud their apparent willingness to serve the public - it really is an unrewarding job.

Nonetheless, leadership seems to be rare and in high demand with little modeling available, considering the public appearances (both live and in selected ads) of such candidates. That doesn't seem to bode particularly well for the state of public government, but the high visibility of such negativism is particularly disconcerting when you think of the wide impact of the the negative exemplar.

  1. I love the lighting and composition of this shot! Well done!

  2. And the modelling for our youth - bullying seems to be the norm.
