Integrity, I Haz It, Part 2

Wow, I'm getting really good at this "saying no" stuff.

Today, a friend asked me to sign a petition to get a particular candidate on the ballot for the political party he represents.

I actually said no, even though I felt guilty because he's my friend and a good guy.

If the candidate had been Jo Schmo, I might have given in.

But he specified the individual, whose very sorry history I happen to know all too well from 20 years in Georgia. I just couldn't. I would have felt irredeemably dirty.

Yeah, I feel a little guilty on his behalf, but the upside far outweighs that.

So I smile...
