Hope in the waiting room

I took my daughter's car in to the dealership today to get a couple of recall things taken care of while she's on vacation.

The bad news is that the TV in the waiting room was tuned to CNN's coverage of opening day of the new Congress, and I had to take pains not to have to listen to all the fawning over Nancy Pelosi's ascent to the Speaker's role.

The good news is that among the waiting room's cross-section of citizenry in this hyper-liberal part of California, no one else was listening to it, either.

There's hope for the country yet.
