Amen

Ezra Klein at The American Prospect:

Because George W. Bush was president, innocent people died in large numbers. Because George W. Bush was president, the earth warmed and disaster edged nearer. Because George W. Bush was president, more children live in poverty. Because George W. Bush was president, the rich wield more power. Because George W. Bush was president, more people hate America. Because George W. Bush was president, more Americans view the presidency cynically. Because George W. Bush was president, this country is worse off, and this world is worse off.

Dobson is a teenager now

I can tell because he doesn't even get up when I come over. He's just a mopey teen who thinks his parents are embarrassing and who hates school and who no one understands. SIGH!

The view from my morning commute

Now that's what I call post-modern. Note the blue sky. Cold, but no snow.

The view from my commute home


Another beautiful January night in Portland. No more snow!!!

I can't stress this enough

From dailykos.com

The Oregon model (100% vote by mail) is the gold standard of electoral systems, and anything that gets us closer to that model is good for our democracy.

Lovely Portland January evening...

Wonderful!



Hysterical reviews at Amazon.com--"Thank you Playmobil for allowing me to teach my 5-year old the importance of recognizing what a failing bureaucracy in a ever growing fascist state looks like. Sometimes it's a hard lesson for kids to learn because not all pigs carry billy clubs and wear body armor."
