PK Icon

Thanks to LJ Network, Crisis Solved

Thanks to filkerdave, I was able to make contact with folks here at GaFilk and get problem resolved. (For some reason, hotel had me reserved ony for Fri & Sat. Must add that the gentleman at the desk was very helpful and professional given what was in the computer.)

I should add that there is nothin that takes the sting out of a reservation screw up better than ending up in the consuite-to-be with friends drinking cider and talking until far too late.

A warning for folks here at GaFilk. The tip of the middle finger of my right hand has become infected and it is very painful when it presses against my other fingers, so I am holding it somewhat extended. So no, I am not flipping you off. Also, if I don't shake hands, that because it really, really hurts to do so. Soaking in warm water seems to be helping some.

Off to bed. Gotta rest up for tomorrow.

And The Wheel Of Karma Goes Round and Round and Round, Round and Round

Palin still pissed at media.

I particularly liked the part where she says she is still getting calls about internet rumors that she is not the actual mother of her child.

Mind you, it's not simply payback, although I confess I'm human enough to enjoy the fact that Palin is feeling exactly what she would have inflicted on Obama and his supposed "paling around with terrorists" if she could have. Rather, the only way to change the rules under which we have these very nasty elections is for EVERY participant of all parties to suffer so much crap over it that both sides back off.

Why do we have laws that prevent things like murder and kidnapping? It does not occur where one side is dominant and graciously decides to protect all others. It happens for the very practical reason that even those who might conceivably benefit gradually discover that the reality created in a world wihout such laws sucks rocks. If we want a world of policitics that minimizes dirty tricks, it must become clear (once again) to enough people that such tactics make life so miserable for your own people that they must be avoided.
