Updates from Ken’s Corner
I’ve not mentioned it yet, but everyone should vote “No” on Charter Amendment #1 in Gainesville. Taking away anyone’s rights in the name of combating a crime for which there are already laws on the books is a pretty lame excuse to capitalize on the Prop 8 success in California.
I also have a number of micro-news updates from my neck of the woods, so here it goes:
1) The novel is nearly finished. I’ve completed a full draft. Now I’m working through proof-reading, and building a list of minor tweaks I need to make regarding plot/scenery. Getting it truly done in the month of April is a reasonable expectation at this point.
2) DC is returning to normal now that winter’s last gasps of snow have faded from memory. The activity in the “Foggy Bottom pit” – construction of a new multi-use complex of buildings and parking garages next to the metro station – has picked up quite a bit now that a crane has arrived. Makes for an interesting sight as I commute to work.
3) I spent the better part of Thursday and Friday working with Powerpoint. I’m leading the charge at work for a new incentive/disciplinary system that will force managers to consider more than raw inventory numbers when reporting the strengths of our pension processing staff.
4) I am happy to announce that, soon, I will begin a series of interviews. I will be letting someone else speak for a change, in other words. More on that later, but my first guest has been a key member of the Independent movement as it’s currently constituted, and will probably have a lot of interesting things to say.
