Life is good man. Busy with a heavy workload at work and a wife & daughter that require my time. But I manage to stay somewhat informed. Glad to see you're still kicking around here. Are you like a lawyer or city councilman yet?
Thanks bud. Really high stakes right now in our government. We need to those spending cuts and we need them to be real not next-president-funny-money. And we also need to fix the upper echelons of our tax code so that the rich pay a good bit more than they are now.
Yeah, I can imagine, sorry to hear about all that, I can't get over the persistence of the DRILL, DRILL, FUCKING DRILL, argument either, it's like there isn't a floating lake of oil cruising toward the southern Atlantic right now. Makes my city's water problem seem pretty damn trivial (not that that stops the Globe and Herald from making it sound like hell on Earth).
Things are good man, but this oil spill has me freaked out, as has the clamour for more drilling. We already have to deal with increased red tides here, add oil spills to that and you can kiss tourism and just general quality of life goodbye. I have no trust that it will be done safely.
