I've been pretty good about avoiding political commentary lately. I haven't given up yelling about it or writing letters to the editor about it, but I've tried to keep it from poisoning the tone of my blog as much as I did last election cycle. I just have one thing to say really right now and it's that I'm disappointed that the Library initiative didn't pass. I figured it wouldn't, but I tried to stay in a bubble where I at least had hope for it. It's almost a shame that we have one of the brightest growth curves in the nation for library readership and we can't get the city together to pay for the libraries we deserve.
