No matter the cause, no matter the circumstances of my delivery – if I'm stuck in a detour from a protest blockade, I get turned off to it immediately. I won't support them.
Now for a lighter story.
A while ago, I was dragging along on my typical morning run, except the freeway was crawling at a much more agonizing pace than usual. I watched several tow trucks roll up the shoulder, looking for stalled vehicles. Nothing. It had to be a pure rubbernecker's delay. I wondered what was going on. Finally, I came within view of an overpass, and the source of the distraction.
Standing on the overpass were people holding election banners that read "SAY 'NO' TO TRAFFIC CONGESTION! VOTE [CANDIDATE] FOR METRO DISTRICT 4!".
I can't wait to see those election results.
