Occupy McConnell

This is Our DC reports that they, as well as some folks from OccupyDC, are camped out in Senator McConnell’s office looking to petition him on the Rebuild America Act. They’re for it and identify it as something that would bring almost 400 million in infrastructure spending to the area.

Whether you’re on their side of this or not it’s a pretty interesting event. Anyone with an opinion on the bill who lives in the 50 states has two numbers they can call and indicate how they’d like their senator to vote. DC residents have none.

Or do they have 100? @OurDC is using their time in McDonnell’s office to phone bank and call other senators. As District residents they didn’t get to vote for any of them but many have felt they should weigh in on how the District conducts its day to day operations. Maybe they should start expecting to hear more from DC’s citizens if they don’t want to provide them with representation of their own to call…

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.
