Newsflash: there is a world outside of the internet
Tonight I met Jerry Brady, a democrat campaigning for the Idaho governorship. It was an interesting gathering, full of people whose names I knew but faces I did not before. County elected officials, people who work in government, concerned citizens, and me. I guess I could say I represented the "netroots." I've been an armchair politican for long enough that I figure it's about time I find out how this stuff works and what exactly I can do to make my community a better place. I still feel like there's a lot I need to learn, but it's time I learn to walk the walk, instead of just mooching karma off of my saintly husband.
