So, er, yeah, since I ain't said nothin' in a little over a week now, a light posting notice must be in effect. Please continue to patronize the excellent blogs in my blogroll in the meantime. Also, please continue to patronize the excellent blogs that are not in my blogroll. You probably know where they are.
However, I realize that my biennial public accounting of my political donations is long overdue, so here goes: I gave $100 each to Independent Presidential candidate Ralph Nader and Independent House candidate Cindy Sheehan (CA-8), and $200 to U.S. Senate candidate Jim Martin (D-GA). (The latter figure should show up on some public database, but I haven't found it yet.) I didn't give to Mr. Martin because I don't like Saxby Chambliss -- I don't like Saxby Chambliss, but I believe that giving money to someone who just happens to oppose someone you don't like is, well, kinda like a hostage situation, and American citizens should never act like hostages. I gave Jim Martin money because I think he's damn terrific, and I'm damn sorry he lost.
