I propose that for a day we turn off the TV, leave the newspaper on the porch, and forget the podcast. Instead, I propose we all chose a topic that is important to us, and write a letter to your senator, representative, governor, mayor, etc.

Thanks for the input.
However, I disagree.
I have gotten the impression that among all the citizens of our country, it is the political careerists who seem mostly to be preoccupied with the production of theatrical sensationalism, as encouraged by the media machine. It is a failure of public service to rely on celebrity and glamor; as neither serves the public. For example, somewhere in our recent past, we forgot that all heroes are accidental; and there is nothing accidental about politics.... nothing at all. Yet the promotion of politicians as celebrity personalities, mostly heroes and heroines, has become central to their conduct... it does not serve us.
