Now that we're on the last lap on the way to Election Day, I wish people who control such things would consider some reformation of the election laws and practices:
1. Strictly limit the amount of time during which candidates may present themselves and their platforms;
2. Set real guidelines for "debates" and town-hall meetings;
3. AGAIN - do something to curtail the obscene waste of money by parties and their candidates, regardless of the sources of the funds thrown away.
I suppose none of this is likely, but it makes one wonder what has happened not only to common sense, but also to any moral sense. If public outcry could alter our recent behavior, let's at least give it a try!
