It's true that I've been really busy. It's true that I've been in a bit of a funk lately. It's true that there are too many things going on in my personal life - not enough of them good.

It's not, however, true that I'm giving up on blogging.

I just need to recharge, to find a little peace. I want to write, it's just that when I get home at the end of a long day I just don't have the energy right now. And my job has changed so that I no longer have much time to myself during the day. So while I try to find a little energy and time, it may be a while between posts - as it has been of a little while.

What hasn't changed is BushCo.'s ability to bring me out of a funk with outrage. So keep dropping by. And thanks for reading my stuff for so long...

So Few Patriots in the Senate

89 - 10.

Ninety-nine votes cast.

Ninety-nine senators voting on whether to let BushCo. continue to find new ways to violate our civil rights and the rights of foreigners who may or may not have done anything wrong.

And only ten of them could find the fortitude to stand up for those rights.

And the news outlets report it as though it were nothing different than the day before. When more people can identify the members of the Simpson family than know the five guarantees of the first amendment - I suppose it's no wonder.

Ninety-nine votes cast.

89 - 10.
