I'm worried about you, Ann
Re: Sept. 1 column by Ann McFeatters.
Ann, I'm worried about you! Having just read your article about the GOP convention, it would appear that you need to breathe some fresh air, take a vacation and rid yourself of all those negative emotions.
Surely you're not, but you sound so angry and bitter. Trust me, a change of scenery could clear your troubled mind and ease your anxiety.
One might gather, reading your piece, that there was absolutely nothing of worth at that convention.
Now, we both know, those children were cute as buttons, the balloons were plentiful and the backdrop was well done. Maybe the noise of your gnashing teeth drowned out the sincerity, honesty and content of the numerous speeches. Sorry you were absent; they were inspiring.
I'd be willing to bet that you think I won't be watching the Democratic National Convention.
Nay, not so, for to be informed and to actually "own" an opinion, one must listen to both sides and perhaps, fact check with legitimate, reliable sources.
Dearest Ann, it's likely you've been in that White House "cave" too long — it has numbed your soul. Take a break, come out into the real world and look for the brighter side. And, Ann, promise me that you won't write a grand, glowing, awe-inspiring report on the DNC before it even happens.
