Department of Obviousness, pick up a red courtesy phone.

As you've no doubt guessed by now, Rooster Spice is on hiatus, but before making it official, I wanted to share a few notes on things personal and political.
  • 2007 was the worst year I've ever had, but we're still alive, and no one killed anyone else.  As far as I know.
  • I really don't have a horse in the Democratic presidential campaign, but I voted for Barack Obama on Tuesday's primaries.  While I think Hillary Clinton would make a good president--better than Obama in some ways--I really, really don't want our history books to have the following list of Presidents: Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton.  That's all there is to it.  We are not a hereditary monarchy.  At least, we're not supposed to be.
  • I have no reservations, however, about the results in a nearby congressional race.  I used to live in Al Wynn's district, and I couldn't be happier that Donna Edwards took him out.  True fact: along Route 50 there's a small airport which is dotted with campaign signs, most small but a couple billboard-sized.  In 2004, the billboards were for Bush-Cheney; in 2006, for Governor Ehrlich and Michael Steele.  This year, they were for Ron Paul... and Wynn.  Do you need any other proof that Wynn is the kind of Democrat only a hard-right Republican would love?
  • Finally: if you ever wondered, I do look ridiculous when I shave my head to look like William Shakespeare.  But that's nothing compared to how I look when the hair I shaved starts to grow back in.  (Got a good review, though.)

Until next time, I remain...

Is the hiatus due to WoW?

Link to the review, Shaxpere!

The hiatus is somewhat WoW-related, but mostly because I haven't had anything I felt moved to write about.

The review, alas, was from our teeny-weeny local community newspaper, which does not have a web component. (Probably because it's run by volunteers who average well over 65...)

"No, the red phone."

Well, Mr. S, keep on remaining not-dead, and I for one hope you're moved again sooner rather than later. And I want to go on record as saying that a Shakespearean brow looks pretty damn good on you.

See you in June?

The trouble with declaring the past year as "the worst year ever" is that it's like daring the next one to out-do it.

The Shakespeare pic is troubling. You couldn't have accomplished the same thing with some Silly Putty?

I hadn't thought of Bill Clinton>Hillary Clinton indicating a hereditary monarchy, but on the other hand they are from Arkansas...
