From the Inside

January 30, 2021

During this past unusual election, I received way too many pieces of beautiful literature from all of the candidates. I would like to have the money everyone spent just for the printing to live out my retirement on.

One of the pieces stood out as the result of an amateur publicist. First, it was addressed to “THE ARNETT HOUSEHOLD OR CURRENT RESIDENT.” Then, it stated “According to public records, you have missed previous elections.” Every home in my area received this notice. If this claim were true, why didn’t the candidates make an effort to come to the neighborhood and attempt to win all the unused votes?

That statement kinda got next to me, because for over 70 years I only remember missing 2 local elections and they were primary events. I always believed that if I didn’t vote, I had no right to complain.

Forgive me for voicing my personal feelings, but that piece of literature has been on my mind for some time. Now that I have shared it with you, I will forget it.

Hopefully, all of you had a glorious holiday season and 2021 will bring prosperity, good health and happiness to you and yours.

We’ll talk again next month.
