So, I know that I said that getting back to livejournal was on my list of things to do, but that was before my laptop decided to be a motherfucker and crap out. All is fixed, but I spend a fairly large amount of time with only marginal amounts of web access. Sorry about that.
Everyone I know in the fleshspace seems to be losing their minds, so I think a retreat into the tubes is the only rational response. I have some thoughts I'll be posting in a couple days about congress, the budget, S&P, and why Democracy isn't the answer.
