The drought has become quite bad, apparently. Food prices will spike, cats will live with dogs, etc. When you look at the list of top droughts, note how many of those were in the 1930s. Ouch.
I'm skipping the gym because of the heat today. Bah. 100 again.
I reserved a truck and ordered some packing materials for our move.
I was going to quit, but I'm a little behind on something we all wanted done for tomorrow, so I don't want to say, "I'm quitting. And I'm not going to have this done tomorrow."
The head of my national church resigned last week at the unanimous request of the Synod of Bishops. There was rampant speculation all week about it because not much was said about the reasons beyond that sentence. Yesterday, the Synod released a fairly detailed letter saying it was because, among other things, the guy didn't follow the policies and procedures for dealing with a clerical sexual misconduct case (a priest accused of rape). Rather unfortunate. Surprisingly, the man still has some tragically vocal defenders who don't think the letter gave enough details and proof for them to abandon him. Of course, the letter was not supposed to prove anything, it was supposed to communicate the minimum necessary information to let the faithful know what happened and why and to quiet the endless rumor-mongering implying it was all about, for instance, conservative vs. liberal politics or whatever. It's rather tragic. There's a lesson there, too: whenever you have a choice in a conflict between a charismatic leader and a seemingly boring bureaucracy which he has seemingly run afoul of, it's probably better to go with the bureaucracy.
According to isidewith.com, I agree most with Jill Stein. The Green Party? Really?! I was half-assing the economics and foreign policy questions and I had strong support for the belief that global warming is happening and is bad, so maybe that was it. Apparently I'm 95% Green, 92% Democrat, 51% Libertarian, 25% Republican. I didn't realize I was so partisan. And apparently my roommate doesn't believe in global warming?! It's fine, I guess, that she agrees most with the Libertarian candidate, but this is nonsense.
Ugh, so ready to quit this job.
Gotta get out of here.
