  •  I have always found your weather Diaries (11+ / 0-)

    to be among the most thoughtful and useful Diaries published on the site.

    I know it is a political site, and that politics will always be the foremost topic, but the weather is today! It has an immediacy that surpasses many other things.

    I can assure you that when the weather threatens my little corner of Oklahoma, I come and look for the "weatherdude Diary", and the comfort that both the Diary and comment threads bring.

    I have never been disappointed by a weather Diary from you, and I trust you implicitly to be the best judge of when one is needed.

    Now ... the other stuff.

    You and I agree on most things. We are, however, individuals so we don't agree on everything ... nor should we. I'm an old geezer, you are young and you have the fervour and certainty that I too had in my youth.

    If I had any advice to offer you, and if you can be condescending, then surely I'm allowed to be patronizing, it would simply be to hesitate a little before you write off some very experienced political activists.

    I don't mean elected officials, I mean folk right here, who have been here a long time.

    People don't always get snark and satire. What can be worse is that they definitely don't take it from a college kid. I know that is insulting, I say it only because that is how people can sometimes feel when they are presented with an in-your-face view and they are sixty, and struggling to live on social security despite voting Democrat all their lives. Many think this President not so good. Some even see Snowden as a bit of a hero ...

    I guess what I am saying is that your views probably won't change much, mine haven't, but your approach might.

    I'm rambling now. I wish I could have you read these words in thirty years :)

    Your friend


    ps ... That was just my 2c, because you asked :)

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.
