Perhaps you have missed my occasional addition of extraordinary service.
I am collecting various thoughts for a possible tiny guide book for
young people. My notes on this subject are:
[If you are fed up with government, always vote against the incumbent,
unless they have proved themselves to be highly effective and selfless
servants of the people they represent. (How balance between
constituent loyalty and American loyalty?)]
I have long struggled with that last part. Even if ascribing the very
highest moral and ethical condition, it is a judgement call.
