In six hours I will be in San Francisco for 22 hours, upon which I will eat all of the Mexican food in Berkeley. First off, as I sit in JetBlue's new Terminal 5 at JFK airport, I am very impressed with the new interior design. I have been to airports in third-world countries that were newer and cleaner than the old JetBlue terminal. Well done. Also, thankfully, I received my absentee ballot (unlike a lot of unfortunate friends) and I've already voted. I was deeply disturbed when I got a robo-call from the Yes on 8 campaign using Barack Obama's statements to endorse their campaign. While I know he has stated that he believes marriage is a union between a man and a woman, I never remember reading about him campaigning for this elimination of people's rights. Not to mention they called me at 11:55pm EST, when I could have been sleeping if I weren't packing. Anyway, all I ask is that Californians vote No on 8 and keep marriage a right to all who want to marry the partner of their choice, as well as No on 4 and not restricting a woman's right to choose, regardless of age.
Also, please vote for whatever prop the high-speed rail train bond is. I would really like to take a train between SF and LA in 2 hours for less than $70.
Finally, I know you have all been waiting for this, but I am officially endorsing Senator Barack Obama. It is certainly change we need, and I hope Americans are smart enough not to realize that moose-killer from Alaska is not capable of running this nation, should she ever be given the chance. Look, Manhattan Mini-Storage agrees with me:
