This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation.
When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

Republicans making sense!
Not a dream!
NOT an imaginary story!
There's a lot of balloon juice floating around Washington D.C. right now about the situation in Libya. Hillary Clinton says Qaddafi has lost all credibility and should step down. Senators McCain and Lieberman, who never met a war they didn't like, want as much military intervention as possible. There's talk of a "no fly zone" being bandied about by White House spokesfolks.
Who is saying we should take it easy? Who is saying we should get all multi-national on this situation if we stick our noses in at all? Sen. Richard Lugar, Indiana, the guy I keep hoping will be the start of bringing the Republican Party back from the lunatic brink.
It's a long shot, I know, but it may come about some sweet day.
Who agrees with him? Lindsey Graham, who usually sides with Grandpa Walnuts and Droopy Dogg, a.k.a. McCain and Lieberman.
I know Republicans making sense is rare. In fact, I invented the label for the first time today after nearly four years of blogging. But sometimes, you have to take the sanity where you find it.
Thank you, Sen. Lugar, I hope people will understand you are the voice of reason on this.
