First, local news. My good friend michael rosenstock lost the election. The details: he, farnoush and cathy were running as a slate for p,vpss,andvpa of a local university students union. farnoush and cathy won, michael lost. Thankfully, we had all gone to cousins, gotten quite drunk, and gotten the news at about 4am at Larissa's nearby. I have to say: i feel for michael. I've never seen him so disappointed. Oh well, i guess that puts me 0 for 2 on elections this year (long story, nother time).
I made a good point to my mom yesterday, about the war. As i wrote previously, i've been torn between being pro-iraq-war, and being against it. I'm a pacifist, yet at the same time i'm absolutely horrified by what happened in rwanda. My mom was going on and on about how they deserve it (in iraq), that people die there and its normal, etc, etc. She gets scared by the whole terrorist thing. So i pointed something out to her. I asked her how she felt on sept 11/2001. How chilled and terrified she was that people nearby were dying. Then i asked her to imagine if that was happening for weeks and months on end, not just in one place, but all over the country. No where to run. I think i drove home the point. As for me, i guess i realized that people dying is wrong. regardless of motive. period. people are people, and people shouldn't be dying.
As for this weekend, two things: homework and truck shopping. I have lots of studying to catch up on, and i wanna push ahead with this truck shopping thing. More later.
