Everybody Needs A Cause
I guess everybody, myself included, has to have some sort of cause to fight for. I'll never understand the ones obsessed with gay marriage, though. In this case, certain groups seem to feel really threatened by the idea that gay people might end up married and even go so far to worry that gay couples might benefit from domestic partnerships.
How silly. I thought that fight was winding down. I guess not.
I won't be signing those petitions.
Actually, she makes a good point about bottled water. I think we have fine tap water up here. I've never understood why people buy so much bottled water. That doesn't mean I don't think people shouldn't be able to buy bottled water. I'm not sure whether she's suggesting that, or not.
When I was with the national guard, we used to take a big water tank to annual training with us. We called it a water buffalo. A 500 gallon tank with some faucets at the bottom to supply water to troops in the field.
It was a sad day, indeed, when the water buffalo ran dry. Then we had to drink the worst water I've probably ever had in my life: Tap water at sunny Camp Roberts, CA. It tasted awful, having sulfur or some such in it. Worst part is you could drink it and drink it and it didn't ever quench your thirst and you had to drink a lot of water down there because it got really hot.
Bottled water was fairly popular at Camp Roberts back then, long before it became the rage it is today.
