on name-calling

Daniel: Susan (he doesn't call me "mom" anymore) is the governor real?
Me: Yes, he is very real. He is a real person, though, so we shouldn't call him names, but he's trying to do some very bad things in our state of Wisconsin.
Daniel: I know what we should call him - Bad Governor!
Me: That seems appropriate enough.
Daniel: Yeah, he's a bad governor. That's why thousands and thousands of people are trying to stop him. Because if he gets what he wants, then people who get sick won't be able to pay the doctor and they'll die!

True enough. We shall be attending demonstrations at the Koch brothers' brand new lobbying office in downtown Madison this afternoon at 4:00. Join us if you can. I'll post more about all of this later, with cute kid pictures no less! So be sure to check in.

Break the Koch habit! You go! Did you hear about the knit-in tomorrow night? 6:30pm, North wing, 2nd floor is what I heard.

No I didn't hear! Thanks, Amanda. Where did you get the info about that?

Any chance he heard Claire call him He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named? She's called him that a couple times on facebook, so that's why I thought of it when I read this : )

It was on facebook... http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/event.php?eid=204590612888526

I heard that it's organized by the Sow's Ear, but I don't know if that's true or not.

Ah, you see, I'm not on facebook. I know I'm the last person on earth, but there you are. Thanks :)
