President Bush will be leaving soon. Thank the gods. I'm sorry it took us idiots four years longer to do it, but I'm thankful we have an inspiring person like Obama in office instead of John Kerry.
But all the good news on the national front is tempered by the state of California which voted to ban gay marriage, which the supreme court of California had ruled was unconstitutional. Now we have overturned that decision. Unbelievably infuriating. Though if you live in California you know how very conservative it actually is. Sad sad sad. I hope someone will be filing a lawsuit against prop 8 soon.
But back to the good news. Here's a lolpol for you:
I live in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2006 I worked in Mexico City. Instead of sending out giant emails full of photos to friends and families, I started this blog. The summer turned out to be a crazy one and this blog and my camera kept me sane. I didn't want to stop observing and writing when I got home to LA, so I kept the blog going.
