Are you a writer? And a Mac user?

Three days left in the current MacHeist bundle: $29, of which 25% goes to (your choice of ten) charities.

Worth it IMHO just for the Scrivener license alone (reg $45), but also includes Evernote Premium, various other utilities, and several games.

I wanted to put this quote into the next Pocketmint article, but it looks like it’s not going to make the final edit:

“What you see too often in Washington and elsewhere around the country is a system of government that seems incapable of action. You see a Congress twisted and pulled in every direction by hundreds of well-financed and powerful special interests. You see every extreme position defended to the last vote, almost to the last breath by one unyielding group or another.”

Sound familiar?

That was said by President Jimmy Carter in 1979. Sad that we’re stuck with the same systemic problems more than thirty years later.

Added photos of the sunny front courtyard, which is my favorite spot in the whole house.

And now I'm going to go take a book and a drink and sit on that bench in the sun. ~bask~

I now have decided to un-circling everybody who posts pictures of cats, sorry I will loose quite some interesting people and information, but cats are really too annoying

I know Obama's election in 2008 was a source of hope for a lot of people. Not me, though.

Oh, I was happy enough -- thrilled that we'd finally managed to elect someone besides a white male, and beyond relieved to finally be done with Bush.

But I'm afraid Obama didn't inspire me to hope. In fact, in the 24 years that I've been voting, no election has ever, ever been about hope for me. I'm a cynical kind of girl that way.

This year is different. This year, I have hope so deep that I become inarticulate. I actually start to cry every time I try to explain it.

So I'm going to use someone else's words.

"Aside from the election for president, in my humble opinion the Massachusetts Senate race is by far the most important election in the nation, and may well be the most important Senate election in a generation. If Elizabeth Warren is elected on Tuesday our national politics and the interests of voters in Massachusetts will be lifted by the most powerful, authentic and courageous voice for fairness and integrity that Washington has witnessed in many years."

Having her in the Senate could be game-changing all by itself. But my secret hope is that I will live to see her in the White House. That would absolutely rock my world. And yours.

There's some lively and thoughtful discussion going on in the comments to my last Pocketmint article.

from the essay:

“‘Bootstrapping’ and ‘equality of opportunity, not outcomes’ make perfect sense if you assume, as I did, that people who hadn’t risen into my world simply hadn’t worked hard enough, or wanted it badly enough, or had simply failed.

“But I had assumed that bootstrapping required about as much as it took to get yourself promoted from junior varsity to varsity. It turns out that it’s more like pulling yourself up from tee-ball to the World Series. Sure, some people do it, but they’re the exceptions, the outliers, the Olympians.”
I grew up in a rich, conservative household, but after Katrina and Iraq, I realized my priorities were out of order

This is an amazing article--both heartfelt and well thought out.
