You have my vote, Steve!

I am fine with reading writers whose political opinion differs from mine. My frustration/alienation occurs when they feel the need to repeatedly pontificate. When a visit to a writer's blog results in hearing more about politics than entertainment on a repeated basis, I look for a new blog and sometimes a new writer.

Let's be honest, I am not going to a political pundit's website to read about his writing process, Doc Savage, or Castle; why would would I go to a genre writer's website to for snarky political comments or a detailed analysis of a party's platform.

Personally, I'd love to hear about your political views, but only on an extremely local level. What our your thoughts on the school board? How about your city council? The public needs to know!

I'm with you, Greg -- I don't mind when writers are of the opposite political persuasion. Why should I? Half my family and friends are, too. What I don't like is when writers get self-righteous and nasty. Then, for me, it becomes personal, and that ruins my ability (or at least my desire) to enjoy their work.

And I really, really don't want to go on the record about local politics, Jeff. When it comes to what the school board and city council are up to, folks here get freakin' *intense*!
