Mum and I have just returned from a trip to the capital of Georgia, Atlanta. It was a lovely trip. We visited the Capitol building, which I truly enjoyed. We also used the public transportation system, which was, if not always timely, pretty damn convenient. If we were having coffee, we’d be talking about our latest travels and any future travel plans.
And if we’d be having coffee, I have to admit we’d be talking a lot about the so-called Freedom of Religion acts that have been going around, especially around the South. My state’s governor recently vetoed the Freedom of Religion act, but that was after many businesses (including entertainment — The Walking Dead is filmed here in Georgia) threatened to take their wares elsewhere. It is a sad state of affairs that states care more about businesses than the actual lives of people.
Today is the Wisconsin caucus. Even though I am an enthusiastic campaign watcher, I am anxious about the outcome. It is so contentious already, and I am worried about where the chips may fall. If we were having coffee, we’d be talking about the future of American politics and how we got here in the first place. A heavy Saturday, to be sure. But there is tea and coffee and some delicious treats, so it wouldn’t be too bad all told.
Until next week, then! – SDM
