Since this is supposedly a blog about being a children's book writer (though I admittedly often end up discussing off-topic things such as candy preferences and disco...), I've tried to keep my political leanings off this blog. It's not that I don't have strong opinions; I just figure this isn't the place for them.
However. I feel compelled to report to my loyal readers that today my yard signs for the Presidential candidate I hope-like-heck will be elected were stolen right out of my yard! In broad daylight! Looks like quite a few neighbors lost theirs as well.
On the voter intimidation scale, that ranks right up there with a three-year-old sticking his/her tongue out at you. But still, it isn't very good citizenship. I hope whoever (whomever?) did it is ashamed.
I hastily scrawled a temporary replacement sign on a corner of foam board leftover from a project. I share it with you here, with the full understanding that if your yard sign supports a different candidate than mine, I thoroughly respect your choice, and I will not steal your sign.
OK. Rant over now. Carry on.
