Well, the election is coming up fast, and I don’t know about any of you, but I’m more than a little disappointed in what I’ve seen of the candidates so far. I’m not going to tell you how to vote, even if I wanted to… well, let’s just say that the ‘lesser evil’ argument lost it’s effectiveness on me a few years ago. If you can find a candidate that you actually support, then definitely get out there and vote for him! If you can’t, then I encourage you to think carefully about whether you actually want to cast your vote for a person you don’t want in office. Anyway, it’s time for the story challenge, and you probably know the rules already: You must write a story of at least a hundred words, and not more than five hundred (if you want to post it as a comment – if it’s just for yourself, then it can be as long as you want). The story must be about the theme given in this post. So, if the theme I give you is Life, don’t write a story about the lord of the underworld. If the theme is War, don’t write a story about a farmer planting his crops. Themes are very broad, so it really shouldn’t be hard to stay within a given theme, but I teach, so I know that some people have trouble with this.
Your theme: The Lesser of Two Evils
