First up, I’m out of pocket at the moment. Overnight with family here in Vista, CA, and later today San Diego for a couple of days. We’re supposed to have a nice room with a view to the Bay, so if that works out I’ll post a photo.
What can you say about YouTube? What can you say when the most interesting, indeed captivating thing you saw or heard all day yesterday was a self-recorded video of some "nobody" sitting in his bedroom and coming awake to something he’s never had an interest in his entire life?

Is he worth listening to? Well, you decide, but I say that things like this give me confidence in the human species. It’s not that he knows what he’s talking about — he probably doesn’t on any issue in the political spectrum you can name. But he does know that he’s never, ever in his life seen or heard an honest, sincere politician with the integrity to act always for his stated values without equivocation. He’s seeing it for the first time.
