A Cold! And Virginia Politics

Yes, this is a cold. I'd already figured out I didn't have enough recycling to take that out today so I was going to stay home anyway. I called and rescheduled the appointment with my primary doctor from tomorrow to Tuesday, I'll probably be less sick by then.

I voted in five races and three of the people I voted for won, which is good. Another was the clerk of court which is not such a big deal, but the bigot won 3:2 for our local state delegate. On the other hand, Democrats got enough Senate seats (including one I voted for who will become Chairman of Finance) to rule the legislature for the first time in a long time. I don't know that it will actually make Virginia more liberal, but I hope it means we won't be so mean to the Hispanics.
