I Don’t Want a Government Without Barney Frank In It

He’s smart, funny, he’s seems to be honest (but how can I know) and … he’s smart. I go for the smart ones. It’s why I fell so in love with Obama—he taught constitutional law! So yeah, I’m sad that Barney Frank won’t be around after 2013. I’ll miss his commentary and perspective. Sigh. Would you consider moving to NYC?

Oh God, that reminds me. I was reading people’s ads on OK Cupid and this guy says he hates homosexuals in his profile. He just comes out and says “I hate homosexuals.” Uh, okay. (Hide me.) In direct contrast in heart and spirit, my choir director began his email to us this morning with this Martin Luther King, Jr quote. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

The aerial view I mentioned of my band playing outside on Monday night as part of the Winter’s Eve event around Lincoln Square. Thank you Gary Schutz of the American Bible Society for this great shot and for permission to post it!

  1. He may be corrupt, but I can’t take Judicial Watch’s word for it, they’ve got Obama on the list as well!
