It's such a blessing to not have to worry about politics, it's a rare treat for someone like me who lives in ground zero, Washington, DC. It has been two years since I've had to tear down a nazi sign or avoid someone because of an Oath Keeper patch on their backpack and it feels so good. The worst crazies have left and the city has largely returned to normal.

I'm healing up from hip surgery, so perhaps I'm a little more tender than usual. But, this column ending as it did with the Joe Biden for President ad, brought tears to my eyes, as did the cruel and unusual agenda of MAGA Santis. In my mind, there is no excuse for rational Americans to embrace MAGA. President Biden's message should make us all get off our duffs and work to make Biden's vision of America a reality. Bring on those postcards!

I’m writing postcards with Seniors Taking Action. Just ordered a batch from Makers for Democracy and will be writing some for Tony the Democrat until the Civics batch arrives. Very satisfying to be doing something positive . Thanks for the good wishes 😊

I love a quiet summer. I'm sure the Biden campaign is working hard this summer to lay the groundwork for the next year and a half.

Once I found out that the debt limit was raised until after the next election, my stress and anxiety level went way down.

Thanks, Simon, great perspective and I hadn't yet seen Pres. Biden's new ad. I think we're getting better at the messaging! This was a pleasure to share.
