Long Time No Post

ok it's been four months since i wrote anything here. so i'm feeling guilty about it. what has been on my mind this past week?
cole blooded
it's not such a horrible thing that only 17 american soldiers got killed. on the whole, for the year, that's pretty damned good. we've got enemies. this sort of thing is to be expected.

presidential debates
we should have already had the election. i'm bored. someone put it nicely on 60 minutes last week. i made a decision to marry my wife in much less time than a political season. all we are doing by having primary after primary, town hall after town hall and debate after debate for months on end is teach candidates how to remake their image over and over. already saletan declares an old gore dead and a new one born.

is this really the lesson we should be teaching candidates? thank god nader doesn't get the coverage, heaven help us, we'd get a new one. i like the old non-spinning nader just fine, and he's got my vote.
