Life, and stuff.

Since newspapers and Men in Black are starting to pay attention to blogs, I figure it's my civic duty to complain about gas prices, complain about education, complain about Youth These Days, and so forth.

Oh, and the government.

I think the platform that the US government was founded on was great. I think that the current install is screwed to hell, and that it's either going to take a few generations of writing and installing patches, a wipe and reinstall, or switching to a different platform entirely to get rid of the fucking mess.

I'm almost ready to say "Screw this, I'm headed to Scotland."

But I don't really have job skills, I don't have a place to live, I'm not done with my degree, I'm broke, and I have obligations here.

Waiting is.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
