Edited to add: I know many of you may be thinking, is this going to turn into a political blog? I promise to not post more than one post a week (I am thinking Sundays) and you can always ignore these posts if you want, but I would urge you to at least consider what I am posting.
I also want to share two excellent blog posts, both that articulate the same concerns
I have much better than I ever could:
pssst, republicans: comfortable has no place in politics ~ bleeding espresso
Sarah Palin ~ Casey, Italy and Other Good Stuff
