Unless you live an un-plugged lifestyle, it's not easy to avoid the nonstop streaming of today's events. The onslaught can easily provoke feelings of helplessness and a sense of being overwhelmed when you hear over and over that the economy is in the tank, the Congress is drunk on spending, and the solutions--if there are any--are, shall we say, just plain nuts. If you're housebound like me, the opportunity to vent and take action is extremely limited. You want to do something. Since I'm a writer, my instinct is to write. The BoatEater blog comes out of this frustration I have with both sides of the aisle and a culture that appears to have turned deaf, dumb, and blind. In a search for like-minded individuals, I found and joined Smart Girl Politics. So this is my "hello, Smart Girls" shout out!
