Apparently, a 747 full of cocaine disintegrated over my neighborhood recently, for there is a vast amount of strange white stuff all over the ground. Or maybe it's snow; I forget.
It seems like it was long ago, but it's been less than a week since Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME) announced here intention to leave the Senate. That got me thinking a little bit. A few years ago now, we almost moved to Maine, and in doing my due diligence, I checked out the political situation. Uber-tea party governor Paul Lepage had yet to be elected, and the representatives in the state are the usual mixup of both parties. But the senators Snowe and Collins stood out to me. Both Republicans, but neither one of them overtly right wing....and both with the kind of common sense that seems to be unique to New England. It's the sort of image that our own Scott Brown (R-MA) wants
for himself, but will never achieve.
