Too Close To Call For Alcohol

Early evening, too early election returns, and too damn early to hit the bottle.

I might moonshine when Carolina matters, white lighting when Georgia comes around, and tell that metaphorical bartender in Texas… “just leave the bottle.”

The point here is it’s still early. And I’m passing time by multiplexing the tally venues. From Bloomberg to the BBC, to AP, MSNBC, legacy air T.V. and glancing on-line at WAPO, NYT, and the WSJ. And Hey…even scanning Murdoch and company.

Am I happy with what I’m seeing? I don’t know. I’ve been numb to numbers
for seven months. Since Covid-19. I will say this, like all things now, politics during a pandemic feels less centered, certain, and subject to go instant and insanely viral.

I’m spry yet retired. I reside in the inner city of a major metropolitan area of the United States. I read politics. I watch baseball. I hum along with the tune. I June swoon, and moon the bad poem. Post here, are old and new. Opinions are my very own, except when wrong.
