Yeah, Packers!

I don't usually lose much sleep over Green Bay's football fortunes, but since the Redskins moved to D.C. in the 1930s, the outcome of Washington's last home game has accurately predicted whether or not the incumbent party will keep the White House. A win for the 'Skins would have been good news for Bush. The final score yesterday: Packers, 28-14.

I am SO excited about today's election. Woke up early--before 6 a.m.--and have been sampling the morning papers, TV news, and the Internet. It's looking pretty good for John Kerry; check this out. The lines for voting in Florida are amazing. OK, I am off to cast my ballot.

May The Force Be With You


The new teaser trailer for Episode III: The Revenge Of The Sith is on the Internet (at least for AOL members). Looks pretty cool.

Thoughts On The Body Politic


After the passage of the Sedition Act in 1798, Thomas Jefferson wrote these words:

A little patience and we shall see the reign of witches pass over, their spells dissolve, and the people, recovering their true sight, restore their government to its true principles. It is true that in the meantime we are suffering deeply in spirit, and incurring the horrors of a war and long oppressions of enormous public debt . . . If the game runs sometimes against us at home we must have patience till luck turns, and then we shall have an opportunity of winning back the principles we have lost, for this is a game where principles are at stake.

Pretty much sums up my feelings about the state of the nation right now.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

A Sneak Peek


As I write these words, I am enjoying an advance preview of the forthcoming U2 album, How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb. This is good stuff--on a par with 2001's All That You Can't Leave Behind.

From My Journal

I saw this--in English--as an advertisement outside a bookstore while in Kyoto, Japan and thought it was pretty cool:

Master Zeng said: Every day I examine my character in three respects: am I disloyal in my designs for others, am I untrustworthy in my dealings with friends, have I failed to practice what has been passed on to me?
