Let’s Make a Deal

Back in the 1960s, there was a game show entitled “Let’s Make a Deal”-it appears that CBS is showing an updated version, which I have not seen.  The conceit of the original was that the contestant would not know what was behind the door being selected and therefore had to choose between what was known and what was unknown.  Sometimes it was a new car.  Sometimes it was something much less desirable.

On Monday night, Secretary Clinton will face off against Donald Trump in the first presidential debate of this election season.  For anyone who has been following the candidates, their positions on a variety of issues are (mostly) known-that stands in stark contrast to many of the “prizes” in the aforementioned game show.

What is consistent with “Let’s Make a Deal” is that we will have to live with the consequences of the choices made in November.

Take care.
