Not to be partisan here, since this is not a blog about politics, but I just learned that Jill Biden, the wife of vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden in case you hadn't guessed, teaches writing. She teaches writing at a community college and she has mad plans to keep a diary about her experiences on the campaign trail:
"I teach writing, so you can beat that I am going to journal this experience every chance I get."
Do we love this? Huh? Huh? Yes we do. I'm just certain that having a woman who is a writing teacher and a journaler near one of the highest offices in the land is a good thing.
Besides which, she seems like a pretty amazing woman. She married Joe five years after his wife and baby daughter were killed in a car accident and raised his two surviving sons. Along the way she had a child or her own, taught at a community college and earned her PhD.
