i despised nixon. humphrey was my 1st vote. i remember having a running argument senior year w another girl who was in a lot of my classes.
i wasnt paying that much attention, til the attempted coup against clinton. i nearly burst into flames at bush v gore.

i've never been afraid to suck at something new, and never been able to resist a fight. or to at least try to fix something that is broken, but beloved.
i wish it had held the full images and not just the tn's. long lost, mostly, in digital form. but it's nice to see all the words lined up there. almost 150 in the index. i was rly rly mad. it was great therapy, and great writing practice. kept me this side of the line.

and it's what brought me here. i tried to buy google ads, and they turned me down for being too political. i googled and found a post here from the guy who made playing cards w the war criminals. been here every day since. no matter where i was.
