The Debate

Yes, there were some audio problems and yes, the dinging on the phone was not fun. But I thought it went pretty well. The thing that struck me the most about the whole process was that all those questions (and more) came from Democrats all across the state and they’re the same questions Democrats I know have (or at least variations). As nice as it was to have answers to those questions, I think, for me, hearing those questions was more important (since I can’t vote on party chair).

I hope whoever wins is astute enough to realize that all those questions are the concerns of Tennessee Democrats–the ones we got to and the ones that will be sent out later. If people are asking about how we incorporate various factions, it’s because we’re concerned that we’re not doing a good job of that.

Democrats are in a bad spot right now, don’t get me wrong. But those who asked questions gave the eventual winner a real gift.

Edited to add: Braisted has the rundown.

Fable III

The Butcher every once in a while comes home with one of the Fable games. Right now, he’s suffering from a stomach ache and I still have the remnants of this headache, so we’re both hanging out on the couch (much to the dog’s disappointment) while he plays Fable III.

One thing that I just cannot get over is how beautiful this game is and how engaging the storyline is.

It’s funny. People complain about the lack of reading, and, yeah, I’d like people to read more, too. But this thing is amazing, too.

I’m enjoying the metadiscussions about role playing and choose-your-own-adventure books that take place in the game as well.
