Annual Fair Faux Pas


Karen and I went out to the street fair earlier today. We're off somewhere else in just a little bit, so I have to get to the point. I've been out to that fair for as long as I can remember. My parents took me every year after I was old enough to behave myself. This year was kind of disappointing and it had nothing to do with the food or the games or any of the usual stuff like that. Let me preface this by saying that I do vote Mericratic. This year parts of the fair were very political in feel. I don't think it was the doing of the vendors and staff. I do not think it was appropriate.

If you want to invite me out to a party rally, or show up in support of some important bill, or a meet and greet or whatever (but not a protest I donít want anything to do with those, they always go wrong) then I'll consider it if I have time or the issue speaks to me. As I said though, I don't think it was right to politicize at a local street fair, least of all one as old as this. I won't get into the issues that seemed to be buzzing there. This isnít about that. I'm sure a lot of people were turned off by it, and that can only hurt things. It's a fair, not something to exclude or divide people. Okay, that's Karen on Z-Phone so it's time to go.
