...it keeps me from watching politics!
Just so you know, I'm not commenting on the vice-presidential debate yet because I didn't get to watch it! Arrgghh! We had class last night. At our previous meeting, the prof managed to wrap it up by 8 p.m. (ah, efficiency!). Last night, we went until 10 p.m.
I could catch up watching Biden-Palin snippets on YouTube, but I'm a holistic kind of guy: I like to see the whole show, from beginning to end, without interruption, so I can get a feel for the total ebb and flow, how answers built on answers (or didn't), what patterns the candidates followed.
For now, I'll read the transcript, maybe comment later, if there's anything new left to say about the event.
But I do already have one rhetorical knot for my readers to unwind for me: if we need to deal with climate change impacts and clean up our planet, and if we should cap carbon emissions in that effort, how does it make sense to pursue an "all of the above" approach, where "the above" includes increasing production of the very fossil fuels that exacerbate climate change and dirty the planet?
