Observations on the world today.

Thursday, November 04, 2004


I haven't felt much like blogging lately. This was a very bad week for me. Not only did my candidate lose the election to the worst president this country has ever known, but to top things off my wife left me for another man.

She was and still is the first thing I think of in the morning and the last thing I think of before I go to sleep at night, and she's gone. I can't even begin to describe the pain.

Anyway, now that the election is over, I plan to retool my life. I will soon begin working again at publishing my novels. I also have to make some more immediate carreer choices. As a result, this blog will take on a whole new purpose, as I too take on a whole new purpose. It will become more of a journal, and less an exploration of current events. It will still contain my take on the world, but the world just became a whole lot smaller for me.

Losing For Kerry? 

Yahoo! News - Kerry claims victory after Redskins' loss
Senator John Kerry declared victory in the US presidential election, staking his claim on a historical quirk linking past White House races and the Washington Redskins football team.

The National Football League's Redskins lost 28-14 to the Green Bay Packers at home on Sunday and, if tradition holds, this means President George W. Bush is bound to lose the White House.

The legend surrounding the Redskins' last home game before Election Day is simplicity itself: If they win, the White House incumbent will remain president. If they lose, the incumbent loses.
One wonders, did the Redskins throw the game? It would be the ultimate act of patriotism if they did, but I hope not. I want an honest race even down to the meaningless omens.

UPDATE: Apparently, Limbaugh says the refs threw the game for Kerry.
