"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Saturday I marched with the Dino Rossi campaign in the Evergreen State Fair parade, and had a chance to chat with the man himself. I was very impressed. I've yet to meet a successful politician who wasn't likeable--politicians generally only get elected because people like them--so the fact that he was likable wasn't too surprising. It was a pleasant surprise, however, that Rossi was so authentic--acting like a regular human being, rather than a just a likable politician. That's quite a bit rarer.
In related news, Kerry was in our area this weekend. He didn't stop by the fair, though, which puts him in a bad light, I think. So, for that matter, does this.
