A Ray Of Hope In American Politics

23 Sep

If you don’t cry watching this you are dead inside.

I do feel a little strange feeling hopeful about American politics.  It has been so long since I’ve thought a politician was being human and humane that it strikes me as dangerous to put any weight behind the San Diego mayor.  And it strikes me as cause for concern that a decision that comes from the heart (as this one does) requires so many tears, as if he has been making bad decisions for so long that this one, and this announcement, is something akin to standing up at an AA meeting and announcing your alcoholism for the first time in public.
