Occasionally, I will mention my job, my public service activities, and other aspects of my life to offer my readers a better perspective on where I'm coming from. But to be clear:
"The views that I express represent my own opinions, based on my own education and experience, not the opinions of any other entity, party, or group to which I belong. I give these opinions in my individual capacity, as a private citizen, and as someone who gives a good gosh darn about his community, his country, and the truth."
In other words: my blog, my words, my point of view. Enjoy!
Obama Wins Lake County (Illinois and South Dakota!)
Barack Obama beat John McCain in 17 of South Dakota's 66 counties. Among them: Lake County, my home turf, where Obama beat McCain by 40 votes, 3033 to 2993. This in a county that went 60-40 for Clinton just five months ago. Good work, neighbors!
