Hot Travel Tip: It's really cheap to visit Florida during hurricane season!
Weary of Wall Street shenanigans, we decided to get out of town for my birthday. (I'm 39! Again!)
We flew to sunny Florida, where everyone is rich and retired. Surely they won't be bitching about the economy...
Wrong. These days there's no escaping discussions of money & politics. Though (surprise!) global financial collapse seems to be that proverbial straw that has some people rethinking their Republican ways.
As we sat there talking politics (I wasn't talking politics; I was too busy drinking all their wine,) I kept hearing these words: common purpose, common good. Better for the country as a whole...
Wow. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be on the winning team this year.
Why so political?
I came home to lots of emails from people asking me who I'm voting for. Like they really thought I'd vote for Palin simply because she's a woman. She kind of looks like Bush in drag to me.
I don't care about gender. I don't care about race. I'm for animals and clean energy and living within our means. I am voting for Obama. So now you know.
You might also want to know that I was a Republican for many, many years. Back when they cared about the environment.
We spotted this big gal resting near the sidewalk as we were walking home from a fun day at the beach.
