I wanna go back to Barcelona:

he had a duty of confidentiality to her other personalities

I went down to La Grange today to see the courthouse there. The pics aren't that interesting, but it was a nice diversion. Really all I could think about the whole time was that ZZ Top song.
15 minutes into my shift at work tonight I got a $1,000 pledge on credit card from an architect in Mississippi that I have been trying to get a hold of for six months. That made my day, and I told him so.
I love analogies, and I came up with one today that encapsulates how I see the tired old "I don't want my tax dollars spent on this or that" complaint:
It's like if someone breaks into your house and steals all of your money, and then goes and spends all of it on drugs, and you, instead of getting upset about the theft, get upset about what the money was spent on. I have come to the very conservative conclusion that my income is mine, I worked for it, and I think it is criminal for the government to take even one cent.
However, I realize that the government does require some source of income, which is why I don't really have a problem with the taxation of consumption, i.e. sales taxes.
