I lived briefly in Colorado and loved it. And I've discovered that it's impossible to make the runway approach without humming a few bars from everyone's favorite granny-spec wearing granola boy, John Denver.
Fortunately, I have the occasion to visit again on the happy occasion of a dear friend's nuptials. The entire Bitch clan leaves early tomorrow, so you'll be without my services until Monday. I realize that for some of you, this news comes as great sorrow, but worry not, my darlings. The kind folks on my blog roll will surely provide rich and thought-provoking distractions while you wish away the hours 'til my return.
In the meantime, something of note in case you were unaware:
Oregon's assisted suicide law is being debated in the Supreme Court. I find this issue to be among the many instances of cognitive dissonance in the right wing's philosophy. Oregon's voters approved the measure on two occasions, only to be challenged by the federal government. So much for that whole "states' rights" argument, eh?
