Bio not provided
As a liberal Democrat, I'm excited by Rand Paul's filibuster, and so are mafny of my friends who worked against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. You seem to completely miss the *content* of his speech. It was directly aimed at the failed Cheney-Wolfowitz-Rumsfeld "unitary executive branch" war-at-any-price hawkish policy of the previous Republican administration (largely followed by Obama). That is why the leftist Code Pink applauded Rand Paul. That is why the hawkish McCain and Graham attacked him.

I've kept a diary every day since 1969, when I was 18. (Some of the early entries have recently been boring readers of Thought Catalog.) I think that it is really made for certain writers, and that many will just keep one for a short period during a life situation that calls for them to write in a journal or notebook. (Diaries, journals, and notebooks are slightly different animals, though I can't describe the differences other than that I know them when I see them.) I think that most people who do it for a lifetime -- I'll be 62 soon -- are compulsive and slightly crazy. I do think it did help me as a writer to write every day for half an hour or 500 words and I would recommend it, but diary-keeping or journal-keeping is not for every writer.
Reading what you did on a certain day 25 or 40 years in the past can be a lot of fun.
