My friend Patricia has to be credited with that simple comment a few days ago: "Silvestre, maybe you should continue writing."

She was, of course, referring to the articles I have written for MSNBC's Newsvine from 2009 to last year. You see, I was on fire during the first Obama election. That time, I couldn't care if Mickey Mouse was running against whoever was on the Republican ticket. I just wanted to get rid of the Republican machinery.  After eight agonizing and really stressful years under George, serving under him in the Unites States Navy (well, I should say serving under Dick Cheney), I have had enough.
