Newsflash from CNN:
"Attorney General John Ashcroft may resign within two weeks."
My office has suddenly got the political atmopshere of UMass, where I went to school. Am I in Georgia? Am I at Georgia Tech? Are they really discussing the theoretical possibilities of China invading Taiwan, the Bill of Rights, End Times Christianity, ballot fraud, anti-feminist Christianity? Yes, they are! Actually a couple of hours ago Ellen our secretary, who "came out" to me as a secret atheist liberal before I left last year, was in here with me for an hour talking about politics. Prior to our boss Tom leaving that would NEVER have happened. I like the change in atmosphere! It used to be nobody talked politics or war EVER because the vibe we get that war = business for GTRI. But now that Tom's gone, we say "Hey, we're computer techs, not engineers with contracts with the DOD -- they'll always need us, no matter what we think of the gov't!" Amen.
