Election Wrap Up

I was walking home from work today, almost three blocks from the subway stop. When suddenly I heard this huge roar of people. It was a "Red Sox Win The World Series" type roar. It took me a second to figure out that Webb must be at Courthouse Plaza, accepting his victory. I got home in time to see the last bit of the rally on tv, which didn't really capture the loudness that I heard. Webb wasn't a thrilling candidate, to me, but it's time for Senator Allen to polish up those stupid boots of his and hike back to California. I did like the thing about Webb and his son's boots. It's at least nice to know that now we have someone representing us who has such a personal stake in the war.

With that, Adios, George Allen.

Wish I had been around to catch the Webb announcement. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that Allen conceded today, instead of dragging the decision out unnecessarily.

When the hell are The Gourds coming around again?

Their calendar barely has them out of Texas until January, nothing after that until May 5 at a festival in NC, that appears to be outside of Asheville, some kind of rafting festival. They've got a new thing where you can order live recordings. I wish you could get videos...
