This quotation popped up in a TV show on PPS. I believe there is a valuable message here and why this election is so filled with anger and vitriol.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.

why is this election/this town 'so filled with anger and vitriol?'

i took a stab at the problem in my LTE this week, but only scratched the surface.
i don't understand appreciate the escalation of every damn issue.
 
FP swings like a lunatic from great street fests to flat out battle mode, and not much in between.
the list of individuals who started as enthusiasts, moved to activist, were labeled and marginalized and finally 'dropped out' is much too long. i assume that frightens others who are paying attention and they decide it's not worth the effort.
factor in FP's constant drain/attrition re:PHS and we're feeling like a shell of a village. w/nice downtown stores and restaurants.
 
people are not at their best either towing the party line or living in the margins.

in lieu of all the bad news, another twain:
