Edwards on New Year’s Day

I’m very excited to announce that I got FTP capabilities back on my website. I’m hoping to get into a pattern of throwing up at least a brief blog every day. We’ll see how that goes. This is perhaps the end of the long blog era, but more pictorial blogs are the hope.

Below are some pictures that aren’t very timely. They are pictures that I took at an Edwards rally on New Year’s Day. He has since went on to finish 2nd at the Iowa Caucuses and 3rd in the New Hampshire Primary. I didn’t caucus for Edwards. I caucused for Obama, but I have a Political Science Degree from America’s premiere land grant university collecting dust in a box somewhere, so I like this kind of stuff. I went to see a few other people, but I didn’t take any pictures or the pictures turned out to be unacceptable. You might have noticed a picture of Giuliani a few blogs back that I transformed into something more acceptable.

Incidentally, that degree that is collecting dust in a box somewhere. I only owe about 1800 smackers on it now. I’ve almost paid off my brain. In fact, if everything breaks just right, my brain will be mine in February. The US Department of Education will own me no longer.

I will finally be able to appreciate the lyrics from that old Pearl Jam song:

The selfish, they’re all standing in line
Faithing and hoping to buy themselves time
Me, I figure as each breath goes by
I only own my mind

Here are some pictures from the Edwards speech:
