No really, I mean it

Please stay home if you want to vote for Trump...  For the love of God and this Country. 

Apparently the people in my hometown, the (only half-heartedly) People's Republic of Arlington, listened to the whole voting thing (I think a lot of Democrats crossed the line to have the chance to vote against Trump), but not enough people are listening.

I am voting for the Libertarian candidate if the Republican's cannot figure out a way to not nominate Trump (I admit to mocking the Democrat's "super-delegate" concept for being undemocratic (part of the reason that no one really expected Bernie to get nominated, when you are as plugged in and part of the system as Hillary is, that is a heck of a windmill to tilt to challenge her), but it is looking like a good idea now....). 

I just... can't..... vote for Trump or Hillary.

February "Reads"/Reads

Even more miles for my training equals even more miles for me to listen to books. Though it is a slightly (less so than normal) shorter month.
Valhalla (Lexy Vaughan & Steven Macaulay #1)
  • Valhalla (Lexy Vaughan Steven Macaulay #1) - 
    • Not a bad book. But not interesting enough to keep going. It was interesting how the author tied in the airplane recovery into a recovery effort for, of all things, the Vikings and secret cults. Felt like a mediocre Dan Brown novel.
Brothers in Valor (Man of War, #3)
  • Brothers in Valor (Man of War #3) - 
    • Continuation of a fun series. I enjoyed the interesting situations and the clever ways that the captain was able to escape. Based on the ending I am interested to see where this goes.

The X-Files: Trust No One

  • The X-Files: Trust No One - edited by 
    • With a new "season" of The X-Files on tv, it was hard not to buy this anthology to get into the mood and revel in some nostalgia. So I didn't resist and was quite happy with the set of stories. The X-Files feels like returning to your childhood and most of these stories captured the feel of the show. While not every story completely engaged me, the overall set made me feel like I got my money's worth.

 am deeply looking forward to tomorrow's primary's here in VA (I got excited as I saw that the signs are up around my local polling place) because finally I can toss my vote into the ring. I am not deeply excited about the other options (I am going to go with Rubio, because he seems to be the best mid-line candidate) but I need to make clear that I don't want Trump as the nominee.

P.S. Ignore the request above if you are planning on voting for the Donald. If so then please, for the love of God and country, stay at home. (and that goes double for Democrats who may think it is funny to toss a ringer into the campaign and vote in the Republican primary. That is the definition of a dick move.)
