  Four More Years.
Well, it's four more years. I thought that presidential elections were Federal holidays, but it seemed like a regular day around here. I thought there would be no mail pickup, but there was.

And tonight the financial report showed how the "war" stocks all closed up. Also the pharmacy stocks were up based on the belief that Bush will not allow the import of cheaper drugs. Time will tell if things get any better.

Fox News was gloating with Tom DeLay about the redistricting in Texas; five more representative seats in the House. There is a DA in Texas that is indicting some of the fundraisers included in that campaign! Mind you, I know the Democrats are not all lily white either.

It is Wednesday evening here, and I discovered that my nice, heavy sweatshirt is also missing! So I lost over $100 worth of stuff that I could have "converted" to commissary over the last few weeks so as to end up with some traveling money when I leave here at the end of the month!

My counselor is out till Thursday, so it will be another week gone as far as sending out my stuff. I have to send it soon or else!

I finished another book, one of the last five you sent that was "modern day" and USA-Recommended. That certainly lets one know it will not be too challenging. But it was an easy and comforting read.

I am sorry my handwriting is so sloppy. I think it is just the stress building up. I am going to try and type Saturday morning from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM. My cellie usually sleeps in, so I will not lose what little I have left!

I will be diving back into a book now and disappearing for the night. I would like to send some comments to Annabel and Miranda, whose 125 page blog you just sent to me. Let us see if I can get up early Saturday.

P.S. Sorry your bookstore had so much trouble sending out the last batch of books. I am dreading getting my stuff sent out. The mailroom can be bastards when it comes to using book rate!
I was slightly surprised to see bush win, but it looks like a lot of the minorities got challenged at the polls and either didn't vote at all or got a provisional vote that is hard to count...it disturbs me that tricks like this are losing us elections.

Kerry seemed like he would be ok.
yes the election was a bit painful, but we have time to regroup maybe find great candidates on both sides for next time. I am glad to hear you are getting out, but sad to see you go I have been keeping up with your blog for a while now- i hope it will continue once you are ex-prison pete.
