Nan would make a great state-wide candidate; I'm thinking against Portman

next time he runs (2022?)

Ohio has had a hard time attracting good state-wide candidates in recent years, both for governor and senator (except for Sherrod, of course.)

Well remembered. Delivered the news in a calm straight-forward manner.

Many are over-saturated with Trump and Trumpism, and the divisiveness and anger in the US.

I, a life-long political junkie, find I need breaks from hearing the same themes over and over.
24-hour news cycle exceeds my own living cycles.

So I tune in, get caught up on the latest, then tune out for at least a few hours.
There really is more to life than national politics.

I am feeling at this minute your initial frustration re unexpected household repairs.

A plumber is here in my house replacing a faucet that had a slow steady drip - costly enough, in that water is inexpensive in my area and could have dripped indefinitely without a huge cost to me.

Now he has informed that there is a clog in the pipe (which was not there previously); he is using an auger to open the pipe, but now tells me he must drill through the wall., etc.

I also love St. Anthony of Padua, but did not get him on the job soon enough in this case.
Now I need the patron of patience in trying circumstances (although I realize this is just nothing in the big picture.)
Thank you for reminding me of the efficacy of calling for (saintly) help.

Better physical security needed here. He has some, but obviously, not good enough.

The U.S. Secret Service would not have let this happen.
The man (Pope Francis) is in his 80's and physically vulnerable should he fall.
