It's a special joy, isn't it, to have a sick man in the house? Hubby arrived home about 4:30 yesterday afternoon and was showing signs of potential food poisoning. Seems the culprit may be the fish he ate on the plane on the way home. Poor guy. And, yeah, he's playing it for all it's worth! He brought cavier back this trip. I don't think, however, he'll be enjoying that any time soon.
Son went to Junior class orientation at the high school yesterday afternoon. My baby is half way through his high school days. It's all going too fast. And as usual, he has to make class changes on his schedule.
A friend sent a photo slide show of her trip to Europe last month. Sigh. She took her 16 year old daughter, a good friend of my son's all the back to the days of 4th grade. They hit England, Switzerland and France.
The Dixie Chicks cancelled their concert here in Houston due to lack of ticket sales. Snort.
How about those primaries last night, huh. Cynthia McKinney finally gets the boot. She lost big and it definately sends the right message. Her supporters at her rally last night were caught on tape screaming racial slurs and all that stuff. But, remember now, she's the one beaten down by racism.
Joe Leiberman, defeated in his primary by 3 or 4 percentage points will now run as an Independent. He'll win. Ned Lamont was proudly displaying his big name supporters on stage last night - Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. Just guys from the 'hood. The whole race was really interesting between Ned and Joe. Ned was a big supporter of Joe's until he decided to be a senator himself. He contributed to Joe's coffers as recently as last spring. But with no political experience and mega millions in the bank from old family money, well, time for a senate seat.
Ned Lamont, from Greenwich, Ct, the wealthiest community in the country, is all about the will of the people. It's ok with me as it's not my party. If the party of FDR thinks now it is time to fully expose the anti-American defeatist isolationist leanings to the world, well, so be it. And this time out George Bush isn't running. Ned Lamont joins with the whopping 13 senators who voted for immediate cut and running from Iraq and all the usual rhetoric. The dems can't rush to voice public support of Ned fast enough - with John Edwards, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton winning the foot race so far. All of them voted to go into Iraq, as Joe has been punished for now, so there they are. Politicians of principle all.
Four of the kidnappers of Jill Carroll, the reporter from the Christian Scientist Monitor, have now been captured in Iraq. Jill was a big supporter of the insurgents, calling them freedom fighters and all, so it will be interesting to hear of her reaction to their capture. The military she snarled about was responsible for their capture, not to mention her release from her own captivity.
