Sorry sports fans for the delay in programming...

Alright, here's the real story. I've been too #@$*&#$ busy to post anything. I know, you don't really care. But coming soon will be updates on Century Soccer (3 boys playing this year!) and life in general. I have been reading more evolutionary theory and especially books on the human genome and how it is helping trace populations and how neatly it fits with our linguistic studies. I continue to be fascinated by the fact that "we" homo sapiens survived and flourished while the other hominids all died off. I know most of you don't find that exciting, but I think it is great stuff. Politics. It is clear from the Electoral College data that, barring a scandal or the complete meltdown of the American monetary system, that Barack Obama will be re-elected President of the United States of America. Yeah! The much bigger longterm question is "Will we elect enough Democrats to the House and the Senate to be able to overcome the filibuster and actually resume governing these United States?" Romney is an Ass, and the Republicans continue to prove EVERYDAY that they are the party of George Wallace and Lester Maddox, not the party of Abraham Lincoln or Dwight Eisenhower. According to them, it is a sin to (1) invest in America and (2) invest in Americans. Race baiting, total disregard for the welfare of a significant portion of our citizens, and blatant refusal to consider requiring those with extraordinary income and resources to pay more taxes leaves them out of the mainstream and leads them into the dark alleys of criminal activities such as voter disenfranchisement and partisan (not population based) redistricting.
