    If you're a policy geek - and face it, if you weren't, would you be reading this now? - there's lots of really interesting local policy going on all around you.

    Start by going to a meeting or two. Yes, if it's a small meeting, it's weird and uncomfortable to walk in that first time, with everyone wondering what the heck you want and you wondering if you're sitting in the right chair. But sit and listen, and the second or third time you come, they may smile and nod when you come in, glad to see you.

    This is the first step. Whether you run or not, you'll learn a lot about your community and the people who have already stepped up for those positions.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
