October 28, 2010


Election day.  An electricity in the air.  Scrutineers shuffling madly between polls.  Candidates huddled in sparse hotel rooms.  Crowds of people in banquet halls, waiting expectantly for their man to appear, accepting congratulations.  I love elections, and the attendant excitement.  For some reason, call it naiveté, I continually delude myself into thinking that some wild […]

…provided that what you ask for is really, really easy to do. Let this be a lesson to all you readers who think “if only he would…” well, as Morrissey once said:  ask me, ask me, ask me.  Even if you aren’t a buck-toothed girl. Latta Modern Hand Avec.  Have fun.
