the trouble with trying to do voting like a responsible citizen in a democracy
is now I care about the results
even though I have only one drop of influence
and won't really understand the effects
even if anyone does
since I can't usually keep up with all the all.

there was a bit in the guardian about how there should be more and easier information about local voting, which sounds like a good plan, because informed choice makes nice engaged voters.

there should be adequate and easy information about all things
and libraries and so forth to help you access it.




the other trouble is caring about politics in places far away where I have not even a drop of influence.
terrible things happen, fast and slow, by neglect or by action, and keeping up with reports about it is going to do absolutely nothing, since I am here and it is there and if they gave a monkeys they'd not do it in the first place.




what does it take to build Star Trek already?
not the awful backstory bit, to skip to the everybody's happy post scarcity bit.
even stories seem to have given up on that.


I need to write better stories.


I need to write any stories...
