Stating the Obvious
Yes, it's finally November 2nd, the day we've all been waiting for so we can either get on with our lives or make alternate plans of the Rosa Luxemburg variety. I'm going to get one of those black hoodies just in case. In the meanwhile, though, don't forget to vote. Skylar has made her choice:

Kim and I will be taking her lead, naturally. I offer you her just-turned-six wisdom: "I'm voting for John Kerry because he wants to share power with other countries. Having all the power is wrong. George W. Bush just cares about the United States. I think he's handsome but I still want John Kerry to win." It's her future, damn it. She deserves a lot better than the self-authorizing asshole who presently occupies the office of President. So do we all, except, of course, for the fools who forfeit what they deserve by voting for Bush.

Mode: ingly
Muse: the whirring in my overtaxed brain

I want a black hoodie, but I can't buy a Hanes because of its terrible sweat shop labor practices. Plus they're at Target, another strike against getting a hoodie. What should I do?
Signed,
Confused

Dear Confused,

You might want to try buying a product from American Apparel. They are a company located in California whose employees are unionized, paid well, and get full medical benefits. Their sweaters are also incredibly soft. However, because their workers get paid so much more than the other guys, their clothes are also way more expensive. But I'll bet they make a wicked black hoodie.

Yes, I know about American Apparel. But I'm in a rush.
Have you ever shopped from No-Sweat Apparel? They are much cheaper: http://www.nosweatapparel.com/index.html

That goes for you too--are you watching the results at EH's tonight? We can pool our angst and insanity!

I'm probabaly going to watch it alone, at least until I know what the results are -- then it's party time!

a los 6

Increíble la claridad de visión que tienen a veces los niños.
(solo comparable con la inventiva para mentir a la hora de ocultar las travesuras)

pd: Dedos cruzados por Kerry :)

Re: a los 6

Thanks so much for writing. What a day it was. It's a hard time. The Americans who voted for Bush are afraid. Parece que creen que es mejor cuando la gente quien no viven en los EEUU tienen miedo de los EEUU. Compensate for your own fears by making everyone else fear you. I understand that theoretically. But it makes no sense in my heart. I'm ashamed of my country.
