Belated happy Thanksgiving!
We’re at halftime of the LSU/Arkansas game. Most of you probably aren’t big college football fans, but the current situation is unprecedented. The top three teams in the nation are all in the same conference, same division. My team, Alabama, is ranked in between LSU and Ark. So naturally me, bro, and the German Science Babe spent the whole half (is that an oxymoron?) wondering how things will fall out. Our best hope is that ‘Bama keeps the #2 ranking through the coming conference finals. We’ve still got an outside chance at the national title.
Oh, and I just noticed xpat’s comment about Ron Paul consideration. Domestically, he’s been closest to my beliefs this whole time. But his philosophy on foreign policy is so dangerous I don’t think I could vote for him. My support of strong national defense (and Israel) would cause me to opt out and let my fellow citizens decide. I believe a vote for “the lesser of two evils” is still a vote for evil.
(Not that I’m saying Ron Paul is evil. But his policies would probably allow for more of it.)
