Commentary on local issues particularly gub'mint foibles and other stuff that amuses--or abuses--this author's mind. Not afraid to call a spade a garden implement, Mark bloviates on issues of the day and the high silliness of victimology. The author is a politician in recovery, now part of the solution, instead of part of the problem. He is old enough to know better, but still tries to be an 18 year old, in a sixty-something body. He has lived and loved in Washington State all his life.
