Okay, so I'm a terrible blogger. I haven't been on this blog since last spring, but there are a lot of reasons. First and foremost, I am in the most dysfunctional employment situation of my career. I just haven't been motivated to say anything. And of course, I'm not going to say anything here that could worsen the situation. :)
But, I will say that I am overwhelmingly optimistic that we are going to pull out this election. Regardless of what anyone who has a view that disagrees with me has to say about the outcome, we need a change. I'm sorry, but McCain and that ridiculous person he calls a running mate are not it. She is worse than W and she would do nothing to advance the rights of women - unless they live in a cave - and even that is doubtful.
I think in times like these - for me anyway - where we are surrounded by short-sided, hypocritical people, we have to look at the bright side of life. Like, for example, when my friend and I got to meet Jimmie Vaughan (yes, Stevie's big bro) backstage on Sunday nite at the closing of the Backyard, an amazing venue in Austin until the malls overtook the space. In the midst of all the crap, and pole dancers who get promotions - this is the shit. And it's honest. Seriously. And I still miss SRV.
