This was the signing event I attended a few days ago. Jim was a lot of fun and a genuinely nice guy. I got to talk to him for a minute while getting my books signed. Turns out, he’s a big fan of the Castle television series, too.
Things are fairly definite at this point with regards to the election, which is a good thing in that the waiting and wondering are finally over. Our elections haven’t solved the world’s problems, or even just those in the U.S.; our caused it all to come crumbling down, either. Barring the Mayan calendar being off a few weeks, the world won’t suddenly end tomorrow, so this too, is a good thing. For those whose candidate won, congratulations. I hope you take that enthusiasm and passion and continue to work towards making everything you voted for a reality, or nothing will change. To those whose candidate has lost, I offer my condolences but give the same message. Our nation will only truly fall the moment its people have lost their motivation and will to make it a better place.
