|07:55 am - This morning I woke up, and the world was short one more hero|
As others on my friends list have posted, Christopher Reeve is dead. Heart failure.
So, the world is now short one hero, and at a time when we really need one.
I admit, though, that my first thought was, "Damn, what's Smallville going to do now?"
I have a question for discussion, later today. But that can wait. On a side note, I think Friday's debate was a draw, honestly. I see most people here thought Kerry won, but I suspect that these debates are subject to your desires, too. If you want Kerry to win, you're going to hear things that says he does. Of course, I was amused that NBC pointed out scads of flaws with Bush's numbers. . . And damnitall! Kerry forgot Poland again! How can you lead a nation if you forget our vital ally Poland!
I've been awake since 3:30 this morning, and at work since 6:30. I was feeling productive. I have a lot to get done before I head out to Walking With Fire. More importantly, I have to email a couple of people to set my schedule to get out there.
Though everyone else and their mother seems to have received their copy of Oak Leaves, mine has still not arrived. I hope it does before the conference, because I'd really like to show beautycorrosion what her handiwork looks like in its final form.
Comments from everyone I've spoken to are extremely positive, though. I even saw that one of my articles already started a debate on ADF-Druidry, which is amusing.
I've never seen an OL article get discussed before.
Bright futures :)

I thought Kerry clearly won the debate, although he finished weak. However, despite my wishes, I think Cheney clearly won against Edwards. Neither debate will change my vote (Kerry/Edwards), but I base my judgements of the debates on how well the candidates are able to answer the questions. Kerry and Cheney are better than Bush and Edwards in that regard.
Yes, it is sad about Christopher Reeve. I always thought he would walk again. And yes, one of my first thoughts was, "What will Smallville do now?" as well. Lionel will probably kill the doctor off-screen.
