As a columnist, I have always been grateful to Anna Quindlen, who has forged a path that made mine a little easier. This week, her column in Newsweek is like a salve on an open wound, for it expressed what my uneasiness has been about the last week or so. It’s not about one vice presidential candidate or who she is so much as having my values and beliefs co-opted by people who long denigrated them. It is very tough to take and, as my previous posts attest, challenging to take a step back and see the big picture without succumbing to the lowest level of discourse.
Take a look:
Thanks again, Anna.
