blog 2.1

no, seriously this time. i really mean it. this is now my blog. even though i posted to myspace earlier today. hehe. this is what i wrote, in case anyone is keeping track:

another one bites the dust.

today, john warner announced that he would not seek a sixth term in the US senate.

john warner has been virginia's senator for my entire life. in that time, he has become one of the most influential senators of either party, heading up the armed services committee and famously opposing robert bork's confirmation and oliver north's bid for public office.

warner has always been one of the more popular politicians in virginia, never afraid to stand up against his party. i have a deep respect for this man and will miss him dearly.

virginia may become more of a battleground now, as the GOP tries to regain the senate, and as virginia closes further in to the center. it will be interesting to watch.

that's all. so i'm pretty excited about my new site, which is 99.9% done. all i have to do is upload the goodwill video and i am off and running. even though, technically i was off and running last night. lapu even stumbled upon it and commented, which i would NEVER have suspected. oh well. please feel free to comment on the new site, report broken links, difficulty, or viewing issues. annnddd... this really is my blog now.
