Today marks the next chapter of life for two of Madison’s bloggers.
From the conservative end of the political spectrum David Blaska turns another year older, and from the liberal side I turn 59.
Dave and I may not share the same understanding about the way to confront the political issues of the day but we do agree on important matters such as our enjoyment and respect of history and debating with others about politics.
There is also one other area where we meet in agreement.
While politics has always been frothy and energized it does not require those we disagree with to be our enemies. There should be—must be—civility and friendship among those who view the political world differently. I consider Blaska a gentleman and wish him a most Happy Birthday.
