I did my good deed for the day today. Had to think twice, because it was for a Republican!

Out walking the dog this morning on our first walk about 7 am. Came up on a sidewalk trash bin--the kind with a top to hold cigarette butts--and sitting up there was a driver's license! What? Somebody must have picked it up off the sidewalk--or from the curb on the street--and put it there. I put it in my pocket and brought it home. No glasses with me so I couldn't see if it was expired.

The license belonged to a young woman and it was not expired. I tried looking up her name on social media to see if I could find an e-mail or phone number. No luck. But guess what came up? Registered Republican. Gack! I was really tempted to throw it away,

but I got an envelope, wrote a note where I'd found it, and mailed it back to the address on the license.

I wonder if she even knows she lost it. I wonder if it will be delivered to her before she realizes it is gone and has to get a new one. Oh, well.

3. That's true. Doesn't mean I wasn't tempted, though.

8. What we think and what we do

are often two entirely different things.

2. Should have put Obama's name in the return address.

7. You did the "right" thing. Now some Rethugs probably wouldn't return the good deed.

But that's where we differ.
