No Hope to Spare

Writer Lauren Fox of Shorewood in today's issue of The New York Times with another op-ed in her series on presidential politics here.
Wisconsinites are like overstimulated preschoolers, suffering from a collective case of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. We tried so hard to stay on task. We lined up at the polls and threw our support behind Barack Obama. We did the best we could to focus.

But things are getting too muddled, and there is oh so much to distract us.

For example, the United States Bowling Congress announced that it will be moving its headquarters out of the Milwaukee area, leaving us virtually without identity. And a Wisconsin sports star announced his retirement. There was a bit of news coverage of that. [see this earlier post] Also, daylight saving time. It’s so bright out!
