Seventh Anniversary

Some of you may know that I've been having an ongoing scanning party to digitize pretty much anything scannable that I own. I just found this note that my mom wrote to my grandparents 7 years ago (When they were still alive) and thought it was particularly fitting for today:

"March 19, 2003

Dear Grandma and Grandpa,

Hope you are doing fine. Today is a special day. No school due to a snow storm; it's St. Joseph day and also Kaleena's birthday. That along with the idea that the US might start a war today, it is indeed a memorable day."

Caucuses Tonight!

Guess what? Today is the third Tuesday in March which means that it's caucus time! I hope you can go to yours because I'm currently in Washington DC and can't go to mine.

If I were to go, I would caucus for Andrew Romanoff and I would like to encourage you to do the same.

I think that a huge reason to support Romanoff has a better chance than Bennet of beating any Republican candidate and Romanoff is now beating Lieutenant Governor (R) Jane Norton in the polls.

More info about Romanoff:
-Senator Bennet's Special Interest/PAC Contributions
-Romanoff vs. Bennet debate

"We need Washington to work for us. That won’t happen as long as special interests are able to bankroll Congress and block reform. I am the only candidate in this race willing to fix that system, by turning down the cash that corrupts it.

For nearly a decade, I have fought to energize our economy, strengthen our schools, curb the cost of health care, and protect our fragile planet. That’s why I've been recognized as one of the most effective legislative leaders in America – and why I’ll be the best Senator money can’t buy."
