There will be the annual officially approved firework display at Montford’s place this evening on the lake at sundown.

Check out the new very user-friendly Wise County Democrats web site at http://www.wisedems.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

While you are there, check out the Kool-O-Crat Blog and “What is a Kool-O-Crat?” By the way, I even found a link there for Democrats who just speak Spanish at

Kool-O-Crats bring to mind the issue of the polarization of our political parties. Did anyone watch ABC News 2020 last night? A Country Divided: Examining the State of Our Union. Read summary at
http://abcnews.go.com/2020/story?id=2140483&page=1

“In interviews with political leaders, media analysts, and people in communities around the country, ABC News found what appears to be a new phenomenon: the polarization is feeding on itself. It's not just politicians, business or religious leaders, liberals or conservatives — or the media: It's each of us. And it's alarming.”

When a news organization openly admits that anger, violence, and polarization sells news, then you can expect that news media to focus on extremes. Are we to believe that most good liberals are overwhelmingly single and unchurched, or that most conservatives are only white members of evangelical churches???

Let’s hope that the Democrats and Republicans can do something positive to end this sickening stereotyping and polarization.
