What's going on with Jon

I know, I know. I’ve been absent this space again. Mea culpa, and thanks for sticking with me.

Three things I’m excited about:

1. ¡OBAMANOS! Seriously. I don’t care about the politics, either. Barack’s a guy I’d follow into battle. He’s an eloquent speaker and he’s a smart motherfucker and he’s everything the last guy wasn’t. I don’t blame the current credit crisis on Bush, any more than I blamed the dot-bomb on Clinton, but frankly, he looks and sounds like a blithering idiot, and I’m tired of his face. And his choices of advisers have gotten worse and worse – from the heights of Colin Powell, we sunk through that Brownie asshole and into Henry ‘Good Trillions After Bad’ Paulson. It was time for change, time for someone who looks, sounds and acts like The President to be President. I’m enthused.

2. We (The Creative Cusp) have our first songwriting workshop this weekend. Bobby Shaddox is leading it, and I can’t wait to take it, let alone teach part of it. Check out the details here.

3. Trying not to look forward to this Spring, but… anybody know a good French teacher?
