Be Thankful For What You've Got Day

Is it silly to be grateful for the internet? This global brain that has allowed me--relatively late in life--to find niches to fit into that I'd never have found locally? No? All righty then. WirelessEemailLJLaptopIMChatBlogBroadbandGoogle: check.

I'm glad I have a job, as much as it sometimes bugs me, because I'm old and gray and I like being comfortable. I cling to my comfort in the near-certainty that it, along with my civil liberties, will vanish one of these days. So, job: check. Comfort: check.

Political awareness: a burden, but--check. Joining forces with others to mutiny against the madness of Captain Queeg Bush and storm the bridge? Yup. Don't know if I'll be able to fight, or just screed, but I'm grateful to have a walk-on part in the war.

And I'm grateful that prime_meridian is walking among us today, because if she weren't, then the world would be short one very, very smart political activist, one excellent Firefly fan, and one extremely cool person.
