Yesterday my choice for president officially lost the election. Also, we discovered yesterday that Steve Brunsfeld, who would likely be my major professor for a Master's degree, has a mass in his lungs. Steve had cancer 8 years ago and recovered, but now it looks like it may be back, and it may also have metastitized and moved to his spine.
Yesterday was a bad day.
However, I am happy that Obama won in Illinois, and I am happy that Patty Murray was reelected in my home state, along with Jay Inslee and Jim McDermott (who appears to have gotten a landslide vote). I'm happy the monorail challenge failed and the gambling thing failed. Good things did happen. Also, don't forget this, in case you're considering bailing.
If things get heinous, like Bush institutes a draft or takes away women's rights to vote or something, I will move (and probably not to Canada, and probably not forever). But I love this country and this land, and it's going to take a lot more than a 51% vote for Bush to get me to leave. Besides, I'm an ecologist. I'm NEEDED here. Maybe more so now.
Do we have a new governor YET!??! o_O
