From the President: Where's the Hope?

Dave BFrom the President
Dave Barry, Principal Walled Lake Central HS

Anybody but me notice that this is an election year? I participate reluctantly in our political process. I know good Americans keep close tabs on what is going on and vote when they are given the chance. But I don't like it. I tend not to trust what any politician says or put much hope in his or her ability to truly change things. I don't necessarily think I'm right, but it's my default position.
