As much as it pains me-and self-discipline is not a major major for me I must admit, I will make the sacrifice and give up the following five things for forty days-and I am not even a Catholic. And if I were I'd only have to give up one thing ( I think I have that right).
So it is entirely on a voluntary-makes you a better person- (hopefully) mission that I am foregoing the following.
1.Reading leftist blogs especially Politico/Little Green Footballs and especially Daily Kos (I feel better already)
2.Reading leftist newspapers especially the various "Posts" (N.Y./L.A.)
3. Reading anything from Palin Derangement Syndrome sites/people like "Immoral Minority"
4. Responding to childish idiots who comment on my blogs
5.Looking at the smug face of Maureen Dowd (see #2)
Further suggestions welcome (not fromleftists of course) -although I can only carry a certain burden through such a long time-but if the task involves a far left item I will take it on
