Good Trip Back Home

Just got back from 5 days in New Orleans. Saw lots of people, Devin got to see three parades, and he gave out flowers and kissed the girls. He's learning young. It was nice to be back home, and I'm beginning to see some progress in the city's reemergence. Bits and pieces of neighborhoods coming back, usually differentiated by the amount of money available for rebuilding. I continue to be impressed with the development of the Musician's Village. I also saw other non-profit homebuilding in various areas (Central City for one). It won't be the same, but I do see some progress.

P. O.'d

The Monkey Speaks His Mind....

And he's pissed off....

I am so tired of Conservative rants these days. On any medium (blogs, radio, tv, webcasts). I SO WANT the Democrats to win in November--just to see Conservatives whine like never before (actually, like they did when Billary I was in office).

Why can't we just give Conservatives Texas? Please? And that's really generous, if you think about it. They get a territory the size of a country (ask Texans--it IS a country "still") with the stipulation that they stay right where they are and inflict no harm on the remaining United States. Let them play Free Market Monopoly all day long, and let them do whatever they want to their social structure. Gun loving, freedom loving, paranoid schitzophrenic drug using, conservative-land.

There....

Now I feel better :)
