About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

Dragged down by the news. Somebody please cheer me up...

Anyone know of any planned candlelight vigils in Washington to honor the dead in Paris?

I've Googled it, and all I'm getting are past vigils for American gun massacres, and the Charlie Hebdo attacks.

Mrs. Aristus, R-Washington, is strongly considering voting for Hillary Clinton!

Yes, my wife, the staunch Republican, will likely be voting for the Democratic candidate in 2016. That means for two election cycles in a row, she will not have voted republican for President.

She voted very reluctantly for John McCain in 2008.

She voted, readily if not happily, for Barack Obama in 2012.

If Hillary Clinton gets the nomination (and it looks more and more likely that she will) Mrs. Aristus will vote for her.

She said this evening, after watching a news breakdown of the umpteenth Benghazi hearing yesterday: "We need a woman in the White House."

Naturally, I'm so proud I could split!...

Anybody up for a Friday-night drinking thread?

Relaxing with some Burgundy and a pizza.

How's everyone doing tonight?

I was on last night, but it was Thursday, and I didn't have a lot of takers...

Another continuing medication education symposium, another hotel room. How is everyone this evening?

Sipping some red wine, and waiting for a pizza delivery. Just relaxing with some music on the iPod Home and a brand new book.
