Once again, not much time for blogging. In addition to not having any time to get blogging done, I guess that I just haven't been too captivated by the news in the last week or so.
A lot of stuff has happened in the past few years, but it's all begun to shift from being news to just being the way that life is. The Iraq war is part of life, our corrupt, deceitful, self-serving government is part of life (although they constantly seem to find new and enterprising ways of screwing us), the destruction and rebuilding of New Orleans and the gulf coast is part of life, global warming is part of life, the bird flu is part of life, the continuing possibility of terrorist strikes is part of life (although the likelihood of such events is up for debate), high fuel costs are part of life, and the uncertainty of America's economic future is part of life. I'm not saying that these things aren't important- just that they aren't new or catching anyone off guard anymore, and so my usual "first impression" type blog entries regarding some of these topics just don't seem all that appropriate.
The new job is good, but the hours are longer and the work a little more intense than was advertised. It's all part of the "Intake" portion of the job which all starting prosecutors go through, though, so this too shall pass, and eventually I'll move on to other stuff.
Maybe I'm just tired or maybe Steanso is just struggling to avoid a downturn in his attitude cycle. I don't know.
Good news is that the Astros are headed for the World Series, and I've got a new job that's keeping a roof over Cassidy's head.
Peace out, ya'll. I may be stuck in court all day tomorrow, so there may be no blogging. If not, have a good weekend.
Bear with me.
