Had a great birthday last week. Thanks for everyone who helped make it a great day. Finals are done next week.

I will be so happy to get some time off. May 12, 2012 is supposed to be graduation time. That will be good. I've done more walking and plan to get back on the workout train as soon as all my projects are turned in. Hopefully the month will go well enough so I can have a habit re-started. Once there is momentum it tends to keep me going.

The current impulse is great. What I find interesting is that specific issues are still being fought for without looking at what the pre-conditions for change in other places have been. One example is this article by Vicente Navarro about the privatization of politics.

Adios Amiga MR qepd

A friend of mine took her life yesterday. I don't know any details.

The last conversation we had was about her wanting to talk more with me about politics and UnOccupy. So today I head down to Yale Park and later to the Socialist Drinking Club. Today I head out in action for you. Que en Paz Descanses.

I have been walking more lately. Pain is getting better. Going to start lifting again. Because of the hectic nature of my house it won't be as routine and prescribed as before. Just enough to really keep moving.

School have been going good. Looks like I will be able to graduate on time. I just need to decide if I want to design an independent study or take a straightforward class. I'll post that.

In reflecting on lots of stuff it is always interesting how during this period of movement building that lots of middle-class folks are wondering why EVERYONE isn't behind them. Of course if you bring this up they whine about divisiveness. Having conversations aren't divisive. Ignoring issues that are important are. One example is the idea of "Who Gets To Vote?"

Of course the good cheap response is to blame people targeted for the issues they deal with. Its a nice easy out. You see it in the news where poor people are blamed for their problems and in the same news cast you'll see stories trying to make you sympathetic for people losing in the stock market.
