So I finally got around to posting on LJ again. Soooo many things have happened since my last post. Classes are in full swing, as is Alabama football. The game last night was good (as is any that we win); but I was less impressed than I had hoped to be.
How about Hurricane Katrina? Really horrible destruction and devastation. I'm going to try to volunteer to help with the refugees at the Rec Center; and the church is doing some things that I can at least help with somewhat.
Chief Justice William Rehnquist died last night. Another chance for President Bush to move the Supreme Court even more to the right. I hope he doesn't screw things up. I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm conservative and I don't agree with many of Bush's critics. But when it comes to the environment, Bush has a HORRIBLE record. Most conservatives these days don't give a hoot about anthing to do with CONSERVATION (notice the same root word?), even though it makes political and moral sense. One court case interpreting the Endangered Species Act or the NEPA a little differently could spell disaster for what few pockets of biodiversity we have left. Okay, off my soap box now.
No classes Monday. My dad's side of the family is supposed to have a cook out on Smith Lake (Walker county), so I will head there tomorrow.
We're supposed to go to Half-mile Shoal on the Cahaba River this week or next to sample more for Heath's project. It should be pretty fun in the midst of classes and such.
I'm thinking about joining the Peace Corps after I graduate. Hmm.
