Bear with me, please...

I am in the process of swapping from Windows to a Linux system. I have trained myself on all aspects of posting via that platform, but am way behind the curve on Linux. It should improve with time.

Or not :)

Update on Blogoshpere's Most Wanted

OK, concerning Fabian Cayetano Urrea, long featured in my sidebar....

It appears that he was captured in Sinaloa state, Mexico in January, 2007. That's good!

Extradited to the U.S., appeared in court on June 5, 2007 to plead Not Guilty.

Then, on November 7, 2007, a judge determined that he would, indeed, stand trial.

So far, I have no information about trial dates, or, if already completed, results.

Either way, time to remove his mug shot :)


...and I see that many of my links (A LOT!) are dead. Man, that's gonna take some work!!


I see that Mr. Urrea, featured in my Blogosphere's Most Wanted sidebar for so long, had been captured. I'll research the status, and then remove it... when I get some time.


Been gone a while, so long that I forgot all of my passwords, etc.

Interestingly enough, at least to me, is that I have been getting a fairly constant, if diminishing, rate of hits during the entire hiatus. Initially 20-30 hits per day, gradually falling until now averaging 14-20 hits per day. And my last post was November 9, 2006! Must be people cycling through the 'next blog' option :)

Anyway, I'll have more to say shortly.

Vote Early, and Vote.... well, Early

Like Glenn, I also voted early today. I overheard a precinct worker tell another voter that the voting had been relatively heavy, although he made no comparisons to a presidential election. This being a Friday, and before what I expected would be a noon rush, it was at least as crowded as during the August primary on a Saturday morning. Make of that what you will. One striking difference, to me, between the primary and today... during the primary there were a LOT of candidates and/or their reps lining the route to the polling station, today there were none. A Friday-Saturday difference? Hot summer as opposed to a rather cool, damp fall day? I don't know.

Poll workers were friendly and chatty, until you reached the voting machines themselves, where they became earnest, efficient and very business-like. Notices were posted in the waiting areas explaining that the poll workers would not explain the meanings of the proposed state constitutional amendments, so please do not ask.

I will admit that I cast a pair of votes for Democrats. Unlike Glenn, I won't keep you guessing... neither of those votes went to Harold Ford, Jr.
