Get Outta Town!

Just a few days ago, I wrote about the one thing I wouldn’t write about.

So, I will dance around the subject.

Let’s say, hypothetically, that a controversial bill was up for a vote and was certain to pass. And let’s say that, in order for a vote to take place, at least one member of both parties has to be present. And let’s suppose that one party did not want this measure to pass. And let’s assume that, if the vote were taken, it would result in things this party did not want.

Let us further assume that said party decided to flee the state so that there could not be a vote.

Could it be said that they did not allow a decision to be made? Or were they, by fleeing, actively making a decision?

Avoiding a hard decision, a touchy subject, or an uncomfortable conversation does not negate the issue. It simply says that the issue (or the repercussions of inaction) are not important enough to go out on a limb.

This is hard for me. I am not a fan of confrontation. But I am less of a fan of letting wounds fester.

But every now and then, I get on a bus.

How was my dancing?
