Well, Mr. President, with all due respect, I’m slightly disappointed. So much excitement: the change we needed. Promises made; not fully kept. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still happy you were elected, but I’m not pleased with the following:

You’re not working hard enough to help public education, or to end the attack on unions.

Just end the war in Iraq/Afghanistan/wherever people piss us off.

Michigan is dying, Mr. President… what are you doing to help? The President firing a CEO isn’t “help”. It’s “seriously overstepping boundaries”.

I still have hope, Mr. President, give me a reason to keep it.

I am both surprised and impressed. Today I am half-way to completing my first month of 100 words daily. Once this entry is complete I will have written 16 of 31 entries for March.

I’ve been reading about the End of Life forum that was launched last week by President Mary McAleese. It seems like a very worthy endeavour by the Irish Hospice Foundation. They have started a national conversation on how best to deal with the inevitable end of life that we all face. From all angles. The conversation is to end with an agenda for action in 2010.

George lamented over the constant fuss about race. Were there not familiar issues, tendencies and behaviors that were not exclusive to hue? The notion of racism seemed to be a human tendency of trying to eschew shortcomings or negative attributes by assigning bad elements to someone based on something as asinine as shade. He would contend that we were all fucked, in some fashion. What did it matter if you were testaceous or nearing pigment that made you almost transparent?

His sister would say this was a convenient argument for a black man dating a white woman. He knew better.
