My hairdresser scared the \* out of me.
You're really voting for Barack Obama? His name scares me, she said.
His name? Here is a woman living in the cosmopolitan center of the Rocky Mountains who thinks John McCain was the better choice for president because his name was Anglo-Saxon? I asked her to please educate herself on Barack Obama before November 4 and not just spout off, what sounded to me like, talking points from Fox Television. The people in this country can't take four more months, much less four more years, of Republican rule.
One of my favorite songs from the '80s\* took on a whole new meaning when I heard it on the way home. The song speaks to the spirit of Barack Obama and his supporters. The video clips give you perspective on what should and should not be feared. Please watch it, dance along if you'd like, and use the links below to get more information. Your fellow citizens will appreciate you for doing that.
all the best,
\*Change in the Wind performed by the Boston-based band Face to Face with vocalist Laurie Sargent from their One Big Day LP released in 1988. How prescient are they?

Over on my personal blog, you might be interested in my experiences getting a ticket for the Obama Tour 2008. I'll be at INVESCO Field in Denver Thursday night for the big acceptance speech - my first moment in history, I think.
