I love election nights... flipping from channel to channel: local to national to colbert. It's exciting, disappointing, funny (Missouri wouldn't let Mrs. Carnahan vote!!), hopeful and devestating. I like the energy it generates inside me.
But I love cable too. Because cable allows me to watch Law & Order on TNT when I'm too cranky to watch the govenor give an acceptance speech.
As if I won't get enough drama watching the elections, I have to watch the fake kind. At least Jack McCoy is witty.
How did things turn out in Missouri? I never heard the final count on govenor or stem cell research.
Sigh. Come through for the nation Missouri, you can do it. You had it once, show us your spirit for justice and life once again.
Death or life? Pro-choice/life, end of life issues, stem cell research, the death penalty. What is life and what is death and who gets to decide?
We do. I hope you voted.
And we get to choose it too. Every time we choose forgiveness over a gun, peace talks over war, hospitals over hopeful home remedies, we choose life. And we make laws and rules and covenants to help people choose life every day and hold them accountable when they don't.
I too choose life.
And Law & Order.
