I think the whole child-directing-air-traffic thing is quite overblown and no big deal. It’s so unlike us as a nation to spend a lot of time and energy on things that don’t really matter!
I don’t hate winter quite like I used to. Fun family stuff like Upward helps. Being busy at work helps too. All of that said, it’d suit me fine if after the nice weekend we currently have forecast, there aren’t any more 20s until the late fall.
Despite that President Obama was too chickenshit to use the word in his address yesterday, an attempt to ram through “health care reform” using the budget reconciliation process is coming. I may write a longer post on it, and I may not. Nothing is surprising from this administration anymore. Our esteemed “post-partisan” president may well be the most arrogantly and bitterly partisan president in history.
Somehow I am signed up for a “pantyhose newsletter,” which seems to be geared toward fetishists for such, which I am not (you know, particularly, but who doesn’t like the line up the back?).

It looks shady enough that I’m scared to follow the unsubscribe instructions, for fear of confirming that my email address is good and multiplying the porn spam tenfold.
