back from VB

Had a short visit with my brother Ian in Venice Cali over the weekend. If I feel like it I'll have more to say, but it was about 99% family hang-out-and-chat, and not necessarily that interesting to anyone else.

But I noticed something about all the tacky boardwalk vendors -- Barack Obama is apparently rating right up there with boardwalk kitsch heroes like Jim Morrison, Jerry Garcia and Bob Marley, in terms of T shirt and poster designs. Does that bode ill or well for his campaign, that the constituency least likely to vote for ANYONE is proud to plaster his mug across their chests?
