Bloatation

Well...so much for working off some of the weight this past weekend. It shouldn't have been a surprise, since I was doing more boxing and taping than I was lifting and hauling, but it was still disappointing to see that I'd tacked on almost eight pounds over the course of the week.

Last night I didn't even consider going over to the old place. My legs were still sore from the weekend, and I was also tired from working until 6:40 to make up time lost from an afternoon doctor's appointment. So I filled up the Sportage, had some Chinese for dinner, and went home with the intention of going to bed early, which I did manage to do. Not feeling quite so tired today, but the legs still ache a little bit. I'll be going back to Emerald Park tonight to get rid of the last pieces of furniture, throw out the remaining trash, clean the bathrooms and kitchen, and haul away the last boxes. jamestrainor and phoenixalpha will be helping, and if anyone else wants to help they'd be welcome. We should be out there around 6:30, depending on how the traffic is.

Get the message

Some Democrats get it.

It was a nice change of pace to read Chris Nolan's critique of Nicholas Lemann's interview of Hugh Hewitt, which unfortunately is not online. Chris realizes that the notion of objective journalism is mostly about the MSM striving to ignore their own prejudices and how they affect what is covered and how it's covered, which is not something you see every day in people pulling the D lever.

I think if more Democrats saw things the way Chris did, we'd have a lot less reflexive FOX-bashing and a lot less sneering at talk-show hosts, who are at least honest about their political opinions. We might also have a lot less polarization going on.
