Meeting Bloggers

It's late, I got nothin', and I need to get some sleep. But I met this guy - Asher Abrams - for coffee today and he wrote a post about it for those of you who are interested in that sort of thing.

Asher isn't the most stereotypical person around. He joined the Marines, fought in the 1991 Gulf War, came home, moved to San Francisco, joined and actually volunteered for the Green Party, voted for Ralph Nader twice, moved to Portland, then voted for Bush in 2004. He has long hair, glasses, and a beard, and he likes to wear Bush/Cheney buttons while shopping at Whole Foods. 9-11 made him a more complicated person than he already was, and naturally we got along great.
