Another way of looking at our US Senate wins.

Thought I would post a link to my personal site and the data work I've been doing.

This graph shows the results per Wikipedia, with Democrats in Blue, Republicans in Red and Independents in Yellow.

I'm working on maps for Washington State as well.

Dear Mr. Lame Duck

You stupid idiot.

You damned fool.

Sure, you can fight fire with fire, if you're willing to watch the entire building or forest burn down. Sure, you can fight terror with terror, if you're willing to watch the Constitutional Rights of our people erode and disappear. But by saying that we can't leave Iraq until we "succeed", without giving a definition of success that all sides of the conflict can agree on, you're saying basically nothing.

You fight fire with water, in order to put the fire out. You fight terror with hope, in order to heal the people and the community.

The United States must leave Iraq. Whether that is immediately, on a specific time-table, or based on real and achievable milestones is up to the Iraqi people and the American people working together.

Go ahead. Stay on your high horse. Stay safe in your marble mansion. You have already lost this war. You have already committeed war crimes, and destroyed not one, not two, but three countries. Afghanistan, Iraq and the United States will be feeling the effects of the last 6 years for at least a century, and the entire world will suffer for it.

You're not a leader. You're a lame duck. Just go away.

Matchmaker, Matchmaker, find me a match

A friend in Seattle has put together a fun little website that enables users to create Yes/No questions, answer other people's questions and find people that closely match their own answers.

Here's the link:

To create an account, you'll need an invitation. You can contact Fred, whose email is linked on the home page, or let me know that you're interested in and I'll send you one.
