Howdy all! I think I'm finally caught up on sleep from the trip and stuff, which is nice. Work is going decently, although it's definitely frustrating at times (i.e. right now).

Rick Perry - "Texans have made a decision about marriage and if there is some other state that has a more lenient view than Texas then maybe that's a better place for them to live" (via Andrew Sullivan). Ugh. This just in: apparently Perry was talking about gay war veterans (thanks to Andrew Sullivan). That's freakin unbelievable. Kinky for Governor!

Neat stuff done with Google Maps. One of the neat things is a script that generates a satellite image that can be any size. I might play around and make it a background at work. Good stuff :-)

If you search for pictures of sinkholes on Yahoo, an image of mine comes up fourth. Neat!

Grrr... that Rick Perry thing pisses me off. And the odd thing is even on topics that I agree with him, how he phrases it makes me understand why people object to it. See this is why I don't pay attention to politics - it just makes me frustrated to think about it.
(Oh, and one last note, if the best "family for children" is a "loving father and mother", why is divorce so easy? And so many programs to help single mothers? Mind you, I support availibility to both of these, but it seems inconsistant that they completely reject gay marriage as "bad", but give a wink and a nod to other "non-traditional" family units. I even bet they would praise all of the grandparents raising children, even though they don't have a "loving father and mother" and therefore, by their own admission, not the best family. Grr. Now I'm ranting. Sorry. That one annoyed me a lot.)

Comment from gregstoll:

Amen, sister!

I agree that paying attention to politics can be very disheartening, which is why my level of interest waxes and wanes. But it's a great feeling of empowerment to support good candidates. Hopefully in 2006 he'll be gone (Kay Bailey Hutchison is probably gonna run in the Republican primary, and that would be one heck of a contest!)

Comment from onefishclappin:

Sigh. The other problem I have is that no one group supports all or most of my views. Both parties have parts of their dogma which I adamantly disagree with. So I feel guilty no matter who I vote for. You can't win.

Comment from gregstoll:

Yeah, that's a common problem...

The only solution I've found is to hold your nose, vote for who you agree with most, and write whoever wins emails expressing your opinion about stuff. *shrug*

Comment from cifarelli:


And, well....Texans HAVEN'T made a decision about marriage, yet. Yes, I know the amendment is likely to pass, but it hasn't been voted on yet. His celebration is a bit premature.

Comment from wonderjess:

ok greg, clearly you're not caught up until there are disneyworld pics up on your website. and don't even try to tell me they aren't out there. :)

Comment from gregstoll:

Hah. Hahahaha!
Oh, right, what?
Right. Yeah, I have like 80, so 40-60 will go up. And hopefully sometime this weekend :-)
