Quick Hits 40

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

The presidential contenders are starting to bang their gongs and get their election machines up and humming. Do you think it is possible for a candidate to be taken seriously over the long haul if they are not homogenized and don't play the politician game according to the rules? It seems that free-thinkers and maverick-types never amount to more than a flash in the pan.

What do you think?
