Greetings from the Baltic

i have spent the past week in Europe and still have another to go.  What is particularly refreshing is that American politics are just a footnote here.  It does help place things into perspective.  What it also does make clear is that our political circus is a man-made exhibition created by the symbiotic relationship between the politicians (and “non-politicians”) and the press. However, while it is cleansing to be away from it for a while, I do look forward to being close to it again.  It may be an American circus, but it is after all my American circus.

I’ll return with more substantive observations in a week.
