Iconographic. Work reduction.

Inspired by the photo on the front of today's Seattle PI, I've made a new icon. I love the "I Miss America" sash the protester is wearing. I miss it, too - America before 9/11, before the neo-Con freaks took over the White House and made securing the wealth of their oil baron cronies their number-one priority. I miss a place where I felt like I could make posts like this and not have people knock on my door, where I didn't have to worry about being placed on a no-fly list if I attended a political protest or sent a letter to an official telling him that I think supporting torture and ending the right of habeus corpus is just plain wrong. I spent some time cruising the Post Intelligencer's photos from the protest, looking for familiar faces. I didn't find any, but the puppet head trio of evil was worth the whole thing.

I'm a bit irritated that I rushed into work only to find my 9 AM meeting was cancelled. On the other hand, I think I'm actually relieved, as it means I've got more time to work (or something). I started getting stressed about the big project we've got starting up on the 16th, and I was trying to figure out when I could stay late and work on test cases. I don't really see when - next week looks completely booked. Fortunately, my boss is also not in today, so I expect I'll be nipping out at 4 PM and heading to Putney to get my deposit paid. Huzzah!
