Regarding the asshole from yesterday, he never ended up calling back, at least not while I was there, and my boss basically said that we would deal with him by saying we'd forget the matter if he promised to never come to the store again. Hooray, everyone wins! Or something.

And now for some politicality.

The atrocious man the rest of the state atrociously elected governor has been trying to lay down some extravagantly atrocious bills, and as a result there's been protests at the Capitol every day this week, which is a whole two blocks from my job. I actually just heard the shouting as a huge mass of protesters marched down State St. It makes me very proud to live in a place that can still be reactionary when the situation calls for it, and god I hope it makes a difference, but I'm still upset and bewildered that this horrible,nasty man was even elected in the first place. I wonder if the people who voted him in who are going to get socked by his awful policies have realized what they've done yet.

And the right-wing media does not approve: Beck Cites WI Protests To Claim That "Evil [Is] Spreading Around The Globe." On the February 16 edition of his Fox News show, Beck stated that protests in Madison, WI, as well as in the Middle East and Mexico are part of "evil spreading around the globe."

It's a sorry day in politics when people standing up for themselves are labeled as "evil," but then again, Glenn Beck is a sorry, wicked man. But I'm proud to be a citizen of a city named alongside Cairo.

Maybe there's still a chance to make a difference.
