Be the tortoise…but faster

Last year was the first time that I had ever gotten to the podium in any race I had attempted.  All my life I had assumed I was good, mediocre.  In school I knew that I could ace almost any test thrown at me.  But for some reason I sandbagged it.  I knew that with…

What is a wasted vote?

Dear Reader, I am utterly confused.  Growing up in Idaho and living in Eastern Washington, I have a lot of friends on the right.  Now, living in Western Washington, I have a lot of friends on the left.  My friends on the right by-and-large are not fans of Trump, but they all hate Hillary.  My…
