A Christmas Miracle

Although I can’t help feeling they’ve been shamed into it, rather than doing it because it’s the right thing, (same with the 9/11 Health Bill which I believe is finally getting support among the GOP because Jon Stewart shamed them into it) but YAY to repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell!! And I’m sure some of them did it because it was the right thing.

Matt and Marianne at their panel yesterday. I didn’t fix Matt’s red-eye because whenever I try to people come out looking even scarier.

  1. I know a lot of recently retired military high-ranking brass. And what they are thinking is that this is a calculated move to force a reinstatement of the draft later on. They expect recruitment to go way down and retention of people who might re-up to go way down. I guess we’ll see.

    My wife and I were thinking that New York City might be a healthy place to live because you walk so many places instead of driving. So we were wondering, if you were to take a sort of average, how many miles would you say you walk per week? (Don’t you walk to the grocery store and other places…?)

  2. I walk everywhere, so I’d say anywhere from 5 to 20 miles a week. Five would be a very inactive week, but I have them. But walking is such a pleasure I feel bad if I don’t get a certain amount in. It’s just such a fun city to walk around in, to explore. And doing things like lugging my own groceries home is good exercise.
