And just like that, Georgia has a new state flag. (link to picture of new flag) I never in a million years thought the Georgia legislature would act so quickly and painlessly. OK… I should be more specific. I never thought the Georgia legislature Democrats would act so quickly and painlessly. The legislature Republicans all voted against the new flag. The only thing the Republicans did, besides whine, is get “IN GOD WE TRUST” added to the design before they voted no.

I’d spent all morning diagnosing a bug in our software that just rared its head after hiding for months. I’d finally proven it wasn’t my doing and passed it on to one of the real programmers to fix, and now I was hungry. It was almost two hours past lunch time, and my tummy was feeling it. Especially since I’d slept until the last possible moment this morning and skipped breakfast. Before I decided what to do, a nice looking young woman walked into my office and said, “Would you like some chips and salsa from On The Border?” The powers that be continue to smile upon me.
