so many miles left to go...
looked down at my odo tonight, on my way up from Redondo and hanging with Terry. 145,000 miles on my Amigo. Whoa...

Good thoughts today - got out of the house, got T-dog's laptop to connect wirelessly at his place (surprised will never cease), didn't get a bike or camping gear like I wanted, but did pick up a few books - 2% solution, matthew miller, per Blood's recommendation; Bob Dylan - Chronicles, just cause; Against all enemies - Richard Clarke, since his interviews with Jon Stewart was compelling. T-dog lent me his copy of Thunder Run, by David Zucchino - all of them I'm sure will be good reads.

Think I need to write more.

Think I'll try to push a couple of car related posts... cause there's a good deal of new and exciting releases hitting the roads near you... and it should be easy to put together some words.

Oh, NaNoWriMo is happening, if only I were contributing to my cause!

so. late in the evening, I type and have to go to bed now.

fight the good fight - it is still worth it, I believe. Just so damn hard to turn my personal sense of hopelessness into a viable action strategy. Happy I'm feeling better than I thought I would, and so glad alicia's gonna fight too!

peace, mi amigos.


1,538 days. One thousand, five hundred and thirty eight days.
Until King George is merely a drain on the taxpayers, collecting on an ill gotten pension.
Until King George no longer represents all that is horrible in this country - the hate, the bigotry, the hypocrisy. He may make the Morons of America feel better, knowing that there will be no lawfully wedded gays, but frankly I'm a bit more concerned about the terrorists we're creating every day we drop bombs on the homes of the people we 'liberated'.

1,123 people. One thousand, one hundred and twenty three people.
Who have died protecting my country. My freedoms. My way of life.
Who aren't coming home from the war.
Since the 21st of April, 2003, America has lost 1,123 of the most precious resources we have. Brian Matthew Kennedy, a 25 year old from Evanston, Illinois gave his life that day. His life in exchange for his country. For his country's constitution, for our values, for our morals, and hopefully for the future freedom of the Iraqi people.

btw, I used Jan 20, 2009 as my date of inauguration - not sure if in '09 thats the day, so it'll be close to that day...

wow... perhaps I'm getting feisty.
