Denver has been selected as the site for the first Presidential Debate. While that is wonderful and I would love to go see my favorite candidate (whose initials are M.R.!!), I'm going to stay home that day. Highway 25 runs smack dab through Denver and because of the close proximity to the debate site, they plan on closing - yes closing - a good stretch of it that day. On a Wednesday, on a work day. It's going to cause quite a traffic mess and I'm imagining that the main street that our little track runs off of may even see some heavier than usual traffic with people trying to connect to one of the other freeways. So I think I'll try to stay home as much as I can, although I do have an appointment later in the day.
What do you think? Are you going to watch the debates? Are you tired of the rhetoric? Is your mind made up? One of our local channels is doing something which I feel is great. While being strictly impartial to party affiliation, they are looking at the campaign commercials and researching as to whether what is being said is true or false. You'd be surprised - or not - as to the amount of stuff out there that is totally no true. It's the old don't believe everything that you read - or hear.
My advise? Pray about it and vote with your heart and your head.
Have a wonderful weekend!
