Sometimes a writer doesn't know what to write about. For understandable reasons right now, everybody else in my business seems to be writing about politics - for instance, about how vice presidential choice Paul Ryan
is a bow-hunter, how he draws on bipartisan ideas to reform and save Medicare, and how he will
or will not
attract, or scare off, the votes of senior citizens. But there's more to life than politics, even when a new and fascinating/controversial figure like Ryan, with his traditional values combined with policy boldness, enters the national spotlight.
