And the meddling/pontificating begins


We seem to have a “winner” for the competition to see which congressperson would first promise to subvert DC home rule on marriage equality: Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah.

Here’s my favorite part: “If it were put up for a vote, traditional marriage would win,” he said. “It would win with a congressional vote, and it would win with the residents of Washington, D.C.

Setting aside the question about whether civil rights should be up for a popular vote, I do wonder if anyone explained to Rep Chaffetz that the DC council was elected by the residents of DC… and he was not?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
