...and STAY OUT OF MY YARD

Dammit, I didn't notice this yesterday because it was dark by the time I got home, but I looked out my window this morning to find a campaign yard sign in my front yard. It says "VOTE TODAY", which is fine, but then it has the names of our bumbling Republican US Representative (who got re-elected, grump) and the Republican State House candidate (who lost, yay). Said bumbling Republican US Representative lost VERY badly in my precinct, though... he even got beaten out by the Green party candidate. Which is no surprise because my precinct is mostly University faculty.

I'm pissed about the sign, though. There are lots of unspoken neighborhood rules, and "don't put campaign signs in people's lawns without permission" is certainly one of them.

Illinois has a Democratic governor for the first time in 25 years. Be interesting to see what *he* does with a 2-billion dollar budget shortfall. And our one US Senator up for re-election won, which is good because he was one of the few outspoken against the war in Iraq. And Kate's advisor's wife won a seat on the county board, which is good, but a friend of mine lost, badly, his own bid for same, which is bad.

Republicans now in control of all three branches of the US Government, though... that's REALLY bad.
