Tsunamis, politics, and 2005

125,000 dead and rising from the tsunami, and some of them were probably getting married when it hit. What a crazy, capricious planet this sometimes is.

I got married today. Everything went beautifully. Couples are getting married in Baghdad too. Things there would be very different. Yeah, it’s nice to have a peaceful harbor to come home to, and that’s what Sue and I have now.

2005 will be seriously crazy. Tne Bushites will try to turn this country sharply to the right. Remember, this election was close. The ruling class moved sharply to the right, the populace did not.

We need to oppose them, and that means getting in the streets. This is not a time to stay in the peaceful harbors, but they are nice to come home to.
