Idle thoughts of a relatively libertarian Republican in Cambridge, MA, and whomever he invites. Mostly political.

Voting for Mayor Bloomberg is a bit like voting to sentence a man to death. I can well imagine myself doing such a thing, but I could take no joy in it; it may be the right thing, the best thing to be done under certain circumstances, but it makes stark how far the world falls short of perfection. It is an act of capitulation to the reality of failure.
