I read this piece by Dr. Alan Noble yesterday before the Presidential debate. I agreed with it strongly then. I did not watch the debate last night. There was nothing that would I would learn from it, I knew. I didn’t want to watch the spectacle.

There was spectacle. It’s embarrassing. I still agree with Dr. Noble’s piece today, and I think that the list of reasons for rejecting the President as a candidate is quite long, with just a few more lines added after last night. I do not love Vice-President Biden as a candidate. But, mostly, I’d like news from America to stop being so embarrassing. It’s a very low bar, but it’s where I am now.
