almost done moping

perhaps it's a good thing, you know? a kick in the ass.
(granted, normally you aren't kicked in the ass for 8 consecutive years)

i ask myself, "where do we go from here?", and i didn't really have an answer.

as a former programmer, i did the obvious -- i fired up emacs, M-x doctor, and here are the results:

I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems. Each time
you are finished talking, type RET twice.

where do we go from here?

Why do you say where do you go from there?

shut the fuck up.

Are you afraid of sex?


so emacs turned out to be useless. next up was bloglines, which worked out a bit better.

from the christian science monitor:

"With the presidency, Senate, and House appearing to move conservative, the states have become more important as centers for progressive change, helping to mitigate conservative federal mandates," says Kristina Wilfore, executive director the Ballot Initiative Strategy Center in Washington. "Tuesday's initiative results showed the importance of activists at the local level in overcoming huge odds to achieve things that are appealing to voters in their own communities."

The same held true in Colorado with the success of the renewable energy initiative, requiring that state utilities provide 10 percent of their energy for consumers from alternative sources, such as wind and solar power by 2015.


and itconversations had a great 4 part series on connected politics from pop!tech 04. the final q&a session was really good, and joe trippi had some excellent anecdotes about the dean campaign and the future of grass-roots politics.

so all is not lost. and if worst comes to worst, we can always swear allegiance to general zod, who has powers beyond reason on our little planet houston.
