A slew of posts coming up, on various and sundry topics. I doubt anyone will find things of interest in all the upcoming posts, but I imagine some people will find some good stuff to read.
I don't want it to be another one of those blogs that just regurgitates the rest of the political blogs out there. I want to have a new take on the things that are happening out there, and that takes time and thought.
Most importantly, I find some of the ideologism (is that a word?) in other blogs to be... dangerous. And I want to fight that tendency with my website, to try to see both sides of the issue, when the opposing side exists. So often I'll read a blog and it'll be mindless attacks, as if it were written by Rush Limbaugh or Bill O'Reilly. And I'd prefer it if a moderate Republican could come along, read one of our blog sites, and instead of saying "Look at how one-sided their ideas are," say "Hmm, that's not a bad point. They're wrong, but I can see how they would think that."

But the weird thing (or maybe not weird at all) was that the next day, for breakfast, I made sure to eat only a little... and then I had a healthy lunch, and... well... I didn't snack at all during the day. No urge, not even a little. So maybe my urge to snack during the day is honest-to-goodness hunger.
How... do I use this information?
I've got a ton of frozen veggies in my fridge, and I'm going to make some of the really good spaghetti sauce one of these days, and... I've got onions I've been putting on sandwiches, and, um, tomatoes... I've been trying to eat at home, be healthy, and... Ah, whatever. I'll see how this week goes.
Last night at my mom's birthday dinner, I had been planning on ordering a steak... At the last minute I switched over to the "all-you-can-eat fish fry"... The good news is, the fish was easily seperated from the breading, and it tasted better without it, really. So even with that mistake, that moment of weakness when I ordered the fried fish. I do think I would have enjoyed the steak more, now; it just turns out that I happened to pick the healthy thing. Totally randomly.
The price of this thing is $200 cheaper than at Best Buy, and I was tempted by it at Best Buy... And looking at competing brands, IBM, Dell, Gateway, Apple, it's miles cheaper... Hmm. blah blah blah.
When it comes down to it, though, the laptop is like four trips to Boston. I'd rather have the trips.
