Yep, we have dog #2, Annie. A puppy who at the moment is pestering Mr. Chet. He is a grumpy as ever.

Post Election

So all of the happiness and joy I have been feeling about the election of Barack Obama as president is tempered by the win of Prop 8 in California.

I've been moping around, complaining (ask Kenyetta) and in a funk, unable to put it into words.
Francis and I don't want to be married, but we don't want to be second class either.

This NY Times editorial helped me by echoing a bit of what I'm feeling.
