    It’s been a while since my last post. Time for an update so I can get on with the rest of the story. I’ve been immersed in my master’s program, so all good, just busy here.

    This post will be from my start of work after school, in 1992 and proceed to the end of my work in London, 2008. Part one of two parts.

    In late 2003, as the US presidential elections were in progress, Joel and I lamented the possibility of George W. possibly taking a second term.

    It wasn’t a life-threatening thing, of course, but it gnawed at us. We hated giving our taxes to feed the slaughter and destruction in Iraq and Afghanistan. Not to mention the increasing lack of liberties at home, because of, you know, terrorists.
