Undecided?

My sister sent me this quote from Author David Sedaris on Undecided Voters. It says it better than I could ever say it:

“I look at these people and can't quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. "Can I interest you in the chicken?" she asks. "Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked."

- Author David Sedaris, on undecided voters

While I've commented elsewhere that David Sedaris (whom I generally love) misses the point with his warmed-over joke about Undecided Voters, my absolutely last word on the subject can be found in the latest piece: "Opens and Closes," at my www.undecidedman.com blog.

Smart stuff. Nice blog. Why the Connecticut references?

WPD - All the Connecticut references are because.... I live in Connecticut. Work in NY. At some point I'll fill out my bio so it has more detail. Thanks for the comment. Toni
