I suppose this is January doldrums. I just don't seem to have much to say about anything that's going on. It all seems just so same old, same old. Ah well, FWIW, here's a scattershot of what passes for thought from me these days (don't say you weren't warned)....

This morning, a friend of mine who works in Austin told me that her company is not only giving her Monday off for MLK day, they are ALSO giving her Tuesday off for "Confederate Heroes Day". Assholes. Why don't they just call it "Ku Klux Klan Day" and be out in the open about it?
