Hostage

Snow Pond, NH -

I just returned from Rochester, Somersworth and Dover after a night of chasing around stories about the Clinton Campaign Office Hostage situation. What a night. I am working on a longish piece about my trials and travails for the HuffPo, and I'll post it shortly. I have a lot of work left to do, and not a lot of sleep in the bank, so it likely means I won't be able to make it down to Manchester for Paul and Huckabee Saturday, but I should have my first Gravel piece up from the conference by Sunday nevertheless along with a little media criticism about the GOP debate. Can Ron Paul get a little love? A little more amore?

After the scene I saw tonight all I can say is that I hope that you, fair reader, are free to roam wherever you wish, and if you're drinking or doing drugs I hope you are doing so for happiness and not to silence the demons. There is a lot of sad shit going on out in the world, and a whole lot of sad people. Keep in mind that I got nothing but love for you, whoever you are, and keep doing your thang (especially if that thang is reading my blog).

Pourin' Some Out for Another November Gone by,

I don't mean to hate on any of November's bleakness, just pouring some out for it's sad demise. I now play the 11-month waiting game for November 2008, presidential election having nothing to do with it.
