Here’s to Barack Obama. Bring the goods tonight in Austin — the last debate was a veritable tie — let’s see the next president finally out-debate the competition once and for all. I’ll be watching at 5 PST from the office.

I have no idea what it means to be an Aquarius, but I do know that we are the best sign, and traditionally, February is the best month (despite being also the coldest), against all odds. 2008 is a leap year, and hear we are on the 17th, personally just 6 weeks removed from a 2.5 week trip to South America, and this Februrary — my 33rd — has been so exciting that days seem like weeks (in a good way) and now it is spring training.
