  1. This is irrelevant to the topic of your blog, but i just got done watching Obama’s state of the union speech and I was very impressed by the speech. I felt as though it was a bit trite yet still empowering. I felt as though Obama attempted to appeal to everyone and every issue of the U.S. but then again that’s probably how most politicians. Anyway, I have been reading the newspaper. As a matter of fact, last Thursday when you suggested the idea, I rode the DART train only to conveniently find a newspaper to which I was informed that Rick Perry is out of that race and of Mitt Romney’s 14 percent tax return, which then made me wonder, are you a republican or democrat?

    • You sat through U.S. history for a year and didn’t figure out which party I vote? I didn’t think I could be that opaque.

      P.S. — It’s not off topic at all. See the next post on the blog.
