The Debate is Just Hot Air: Blah, Blah, Blah!

There's a Presidential debate this evening in the USA. There was mention of it in today's Tagesspiegel. I glanced at the headline but didn't read the article. I have better things to do than read about the American election.

Living in Berlin, I'm being spared all the electioneering hot air. I don't need to be bombarded with paid political ads, talking heads on TV analyzing the latest polls, or junk mail flooding my mailbox. I've already made my choice. It was easy. It surprises me that there are "undecided" voters. The two candidates are so profoundly different on the issues and the way they view world. How can a person still be undecided?

And when I think of all the money being spent on the election, it makes me sick. Just think of what that money could do to fight disease and poverty.
