Yes, it will make you very angry.

and very sad.

Are you still on the west coast?

Can you grab an Amtrak or Greyhound up to Vancouver in June?

When in June? I might be spending a week in Denver, CO in June (steve)

yeah that didn't help my feelings but I think he's absolutely right that these things need to happen one at a time, that's a great point and something I should pay closer attention to. It's easy to think "I can do something to fix all of these issues!" but really they all stem from the fact that Democracy as it exists in America is not a system capable of tackling these issues.

sigh, I wish I could get to Denver to visit steve - but there will be Seattle the second week in August - coincidental with my five-year Hubskiversary. I guess I buy the first round.
