"Ding Dong the Dibs are Dead!" (sing to the tune of "Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead.") The Trib is reporting that the city finally put down the gauntlet and said that dibs must end, noting that it will begin clearing "any remaining debris" from the streets. As usual, the city's about a week and a half behind, but I'll take it. I just thought it was my duty to report the end of this abominable practice.
I remember at North Park when Marva Dawn came and talked about how budgets were moral documents. I can't help but thinking that Obama's already deep cuts on social programs will be even deeper when a budget is "compromised" with Republicans. It seems that this budget will be balanced on the backs of the poor, as the saying goes.
I have written the first two pages of my third chapter on my thesis meaning I have officially started all parts of it! Now all I have to do is finish it. What I'm really nervous about is sending my first two chapters to the Seminary Librarian (Norma) so she can check my footnotes. I'm sure she'll find a plethora of problems, as I tend to view footnoting as more of an art than a science, doing what feels right.
Okay, I'm going to read some Nyvall and go to bed. Later.
