The older I get, the greater impression I get that all government, from the international level to the local, is run by comedians already. Winston Churchill's retort to the woman chiding him for being drunk is a favorite. Abraham Lincoln's request to borrow the army for a while from a recalcitrant general during the Civil War is good, too.


JohnH60 — Good points! Your comments is inspiring me to look up these actual instances and quotations from Churchill and Lincoln. Perhaps a follow-up post is in the works. Thank you!

Hello and welcome!

  • My name is Kristin Gorski. I recently earned my doctorate (EdD) in instructional technology and media. My research focuses on technology and literacies, writing in digital spaces, and how media literacy may support academic literacy (among other incredibly interesting topics). On occasion, I’m also a freelance writer and editor. “Write now is good.” is my personal blog about writing, creativity and inspiration (with healthy doses of technology in relevant places). I started it in blogging's heyday (2006) and still post to it, time permitting. If you'd like to collaborate on a project, have writing/technology/creativity info to share, or want to say, "Hi," contact me at kgwritenow (at) yahoo dot com.
