I didn’t bother on Thursday night

About 225 million grownups in America didn’t watch the Republican debate or He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named last Thursday night. I was one of them.

The audience for the GOP debate on Fox was 12.5 million, about 5% of adults in the U.S. Roughly 2.7 million—about 1%--tuned in to the DJT event benefitting military veterans.

The rest of us were doing other things: hoping the next president will use the full powers of the Oval Office to do good things for America, like improving education, boosting infrastructure investment and creating jobs, reducing carbon emissions to tackle the global climate change horror, increasing taxes on the very wealthy, taking steps to fight the greedy power of corporations and Wall Street….

You fill in the hopes I forgot to mention….
