Wouldn’t it have been nice if the money poured into political campaign attack ads over the past few weeks had gone to food banks or other charities instead of being used to assault our eyes and ears. I suppose the TV and radio stations are happy enough with this infusion of cash, but it seems a waste to me. None of these ads has affected how I will vote.
