Hopeful Optimist

I have to thank Cascade County Commissioner Joe Briggs. First, he has given me a term to describe what I used to be: a hopeful optimist. (I say "used to be" because I can no longer remain hopeful in the face of the stonewalling.)

Second, I have now been convinced that I am not a complete whackjob for my seeming obsession with the coal plant and the general dearth of solid information about it. When a guy I respect as much as I do Commissioner Briggs' says the issue "deserves far more public discussion than it has received," I feel...legitimized.
