To keep the peace, skip the politics

September 26, 2008

I read a great column by Denise Neil in the Wichita Eagle yesterday.  She wrote about how she had learned to keep the peace in her family by refusing to discuss politics with her family.

I wish I would have read it one day earlier…  I’m regretting an email that I sent.

A few weeks ago, I had an discussion with a good friend who had learned his lesson in the last presidential election.  I didn’t pay attention then either.

The interesting thing is that it wasn’t my passion for a particular issue or candidate that got the best of me.  It was being ticked off about all the misinformation getting passed around the Internet.  It’s nothing but fear-mongering manipulation.
