Well, the 15 min. twice a day bit has done some wonders on the "fish quilt" - Almost time to roll it again. This is good. At this rate, I'll have it done soon and will be able to start in on the "LOUD Quilt". I'm pretty much settled on what the fish quilt will do - it looks so PERFECT against the pale blue walls of the sewing room, so I think it will live there as the bedspread on the trundle bed in there. The LOUD quilt may be just a "fold it up at the end of the bed in case it's too cold" one. It's about time for me to start thinking about making the repairs to Veggie 2 again also.
Peacechick Mary who has been an inspiration on my journey through the valley of the shadow of Bush's Atrocities, has found a way for us to stand up and be counted (and probably end up on some TSA "watch list" as Kvatch points out)
Thanks to John from Left in Aboite, I got to see some awesome pictures of the march in Washington DC this past weekend. John was there, as was Robert Rouse of "Left of Centrist". Robert's coverage includes one photo that I found so profoundly disturbing that I cannot but comment.
In this photo, a man, looking to be about my age, or perhaps a bit older, is holding up both the middle finger of his right hand, and a sign in his left hand that features a peace symbol over the word "Sucks". Peace sucks. Fuck you, peace sucks. This is what the people who believe in Christianity, in "Family Values", in "Compassionate Conservatism" think. This is what they want for our country - war, division, hatred, death.
They're wrong. 3200 dead wrong. 600,000+ dead wrong.
