12/14/2001 I started the Chatter section on July 27, 2000 when I noticed that the rest of my site was sometimes getting cluttered with lots of text. I'm a talkative guy, after all! So now I talk about my life here, instead of all over the place. Originally this was one huge section, but in December of 2001 it simply became too large to remain as one page, and I broke it into dated sections, as you can see. >PM
It has been a while! I've been busy. Need I say that the election has occupied a lot of my time? As of this writing things don't look good for Al Gore, but the issue isn't settled yet. The situation is a strange one for me; I truly believe that if Bush gets the Presidency, he will have succeeded in subverting the American electoral system. His Presidency will be completely illegitimate, yet the GOP and the media will no doubt laud him to the skies. I will not "unite" behind this drug-dealing drunken little lying spoiled rich-boy thief, and in my book he and his gang of thugs should be charged with treason, convicted, and given a Texas-style sentence.
I've written a few anonymous pieces, but it's not enough. If this little bastard wins, I need to find a way to make a difference...to bring him and the GOP some of the pain that they've caused this country for the last eight years and more. What will that involve? I don't know, yet.
On other fronts, I've backed off the idea of adding stuff to the Chaos Project on a daily basis. It's just too hard, and I'm afraid that I'm running out of ideas. Unfortunately everyone else seems to have stopped adding material too, which is a pity. I need to get my act together and start pushing out material again, I suppose, but the truth is I've been really tired lately - it might be the change of seasons - and it's hard to get anything done.
Oh well. Perhaps it's just the dark before dawn. Time will tell.
By the way, I've added a bit to my bio section - specifically to my Favorites lists. Perhaps that section isn't well arranged? Probably not. Anyone got any suggestions?
