Bush is getting unpopular

I've been reading about polls lately. Bush is in deep doodoo, and getting worse, popularity-wise. It's too bad these numbers didn't come out a year ago, but oh, well.

Oh No!

I thought I was a gadget queen. Guess I was wrong. Magni (a fellow Linuxchix) definitely has me beat. You should see her wish list! And, to top it off, she had to introduce me to a new site, called ShinyShiny. It's a good thing I packed my credit cards (just joking, but it certainly feels that way.)

Nonprofit software and Nonprofit mission

For some of you, this is relatively old news. And for many of you, this will be completely new. A while ago, in my not-so-long-ago life as a nonprofit technology consultant, I had reason to come across a few large companies (I like to call them the 800 pound gorillas) in the nonprofit software field. One of those companies is called Convio.

The last few days has seen a lot of activity about issues relating to Guantanimo. The Daily Kos, as usual, has some very nice coverage of it, particularly of the remarks by Senator Durbin, where he denounces the governments treatment of prisoners there. It's an important read.

Clarence Thomas Dissents

Clarence Thomas intrigues me. There are a variety of reasons he intrigues me, and I'm sure that there are all sorts of reasons I should just dislike him intensely (which, actually, I do.)

I found out today ...

... a friend of mine died, three years ago. Her name was Sara Huestis, and she was someone I was fairly close to back in the late 80s when I lived in Fort Collins, Colorado. We'd lost touch around 1993 or so, although I thought of her now and again, and wondered how she was doing.

Previous lives, future integration

I imagine some of you reading this blog know me well, and know all about my previous lives. I also imagine some of you who read this blog have absolutely no idea (or not much) since I haven't talked really at all about them.

"Hearts and Minds"

I was awakened this morning to a story on NPR about military contractors. You might have heard the brou-ha-ha about the contractors that were captured by the military. There has been quite a bit of blogging about it - see the Daily Kos for a good one.
