It's A Done Deal ...
Well, it's over with and Barack Obama is our 44th president. My hat's off to President-Elect Obama. I do not envy him his job because it will be an uphill battle for him. The Bush administration has left him a destroyed economy and wars on two fronts that he must try to mop up. I am afraid he will not have enough time, even if re-elected
Prop 8 looks like it passed but our official California website is down (http://vote.sos.ca.gov/) from being flooded. I can't even ping the site right now! If you're not familiar with it, this is the ban on gay marriage. I see this as a failing on the part of my fellow Californians. This just goes to show, whoever can sling the best mud can get anything to pass. The upside is we can go back and pass new legislation to overturn this.
In case anybody is wondering, I am straight/hetro but I don't have a problem with two people in love getting married to each other. Even if they are same sex. Come on, California! Lighten up for crying out loud!
On a different note, I have brought out the drawing supplies again. Since I found no artist willing to make a page header portrait of Torvald and Victoria, I have taken it upon myself to give this a try myself. If they look bad when I post the pic, just remember who drew them.
"Dammit Jim! I'm a writer, not an artist!"
