Catching up

I've not posted much lately, but that possibly has something to do with the fact that I've not been reading LJ much lately, either. Not sure why that is.

Class has been going well. Despite being an online class, I've rarely had a class where I have to study as much as I do. It's good, though, as I really need to learn Linux system administration. I've gone far too long without adding that critical skill to my resume.

I've also stopped reading a number of conservative communities. Their vitriol is no worse than that spewed by the liberal ones, but for the time being, I can't handle the homophobia and the "liberals should be shot" attitude.

Heading to the beach later and then tomorrow, like the rest of you, I'll be cowering in terror at the FBI's latest vague, but stern warning.

Remember: we're at war with terrorists. We have always been at war with terrorists.












And then there's the small, but undaunted chorus of voices reminding us that they don't hate us for who we are. They hate us for what we do.</p>
