Graffiti on Alberta Street

Graffiti on Alberta Street, originally uploaded by Erik Kurtz.

I watched Obama sign health care into law this morning ...

I happen to love my government right about now. Obama's compassion and intelligence and the last year of going out through America and listening and knowing that this is the right thing to do. Now 30 million people will have access to affordable health care. There is still work to do, but today's legislation is the foundation for universal health care coverage. Thank you President Obama.

Thank you Senator Ron Wyden for your continuous advocacy, by appearing on the cable news programs and not letting the naysayers and the negative ad campaigns deter you. You did the right thing.

Thank you Representative Blumenauer. I am happy with my representatives here in Oregon. We already have some of the best health care in the country and this legislation will only improve our health and well being.

Thank you Rachel Maddow, Ed Shultz, Keith Olbermann. And thank you to all the tweeps and journalists and bloggers who rallied support for a real health care system. Government by the people and for the people is change I believe in.

Yes We Can and Yes We Did.

Spring Cleaning, Etc.

I've been doing some much needed spring cleaning lately and tweaking my Ubuntu box at the same time. I now have Ubuntu Server, along with the LAMP configuration, so I can start developing a Wordpress site.

Geekiness aside, I took time out tonight to celebrate the passage of health care reform with a nice healthful bowl of pho. It's nice to see progress being made (all around).

Happy spring!!!
