Happy/Sad
Happy: The news that women are living in the most educated, professionally empowered international generation of females EVER. A generation of women poised to take the reins of global leadership-- WOO HOO
Sad: South Dakota's recent move to ban all abortions. It is suspected to go to the (abortion hostile) Supreme Court. Chatter on pro-life blogs suggests that this is just the first step in the challenge to Roe.

Happy: People like speed skater Joey Cheek who is going to donate his silver metal to the Right To Play charity which helps children of war torn Sudan.
Sad: The lack of attention to Sudan in general (even from the left)...and the fact that our military is so overstretched that we can't really devote any of our services to GOOD.

Happy: The Ohio law maker's tongue in cheek legislation to ban "republican adoption"*
Sad: The fact that it is in response to a bill which will ban gay parent adoption in Ohio

Happy: Hillary Clinton hiring Paul Begala and James Carville to help her raise money for her "Senate campaign"
Sad: The fact that I can't decide if I want to get on board the H-train. Is she really as polarizing as I think or is that some line fed to me by the mainstream media? Is she the right candidate for our party?

Happy: Going out dancing tomorrow night
Sad: How my feet are going to feel Sunday morning after I wear my hot (yet painful) shoes



*You HAVE to read the article. It will make you laugh. Especially the part about credible research showing that adopted children raised in Republican homes are more at risk for developing "emotional problems, social stigmas, inflated egos, and alarming lack of tolerance for others they deem different than themselves and an air of overconfidence to mask their insecurities."

EDIT: Did I say that no one was talking about Sudan? The BBC is....this is a happy AND a sad

1. South Dakota's "law" will die a quick death. Passing it was a hate crime against women.

2. Joey Cheek made me watch the Olympics again. For one night, anyway.

3. I'm from New Jersey, the next state to "legalize" gay marriage. As if you can say grownup love should be illegal. We're proud of ourselves for this.

4. Read this, if you can't decide about Hillary:

If you think our party is in trouble now, wait to see what happens if she gets nominated.

5. I only wish I could dance... Have fun.
