Yay for Apple!

I'm glad that Apple came out against Prop 8 this week, and donated $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. I've already seen some Mac customers claim that it's inappropriate for the company to get involved in the issue on some Mac-related websites, but I don't agree. It's no more than what companies like Google have done. Apple is in California, and they have gay employees, so it is their business. Certainly Apple is not perfect. No company is. But this certainly is principled and admirable behavior.

I voted at last

I went in during early voting, and finally got it done, though I'm always a little suspicious of those voting machines with no paper trail. When's somebody gonna standardize voting procedures across the country, huh? But I'm glad I did my part, and can't wait for the final results on Nov. 4. Texas probably can't turn blue this year, but maybe it'll come close, and I hope we can at least get in Rick Noriega for Senator. Because my company cut back our work hours lately, I've been short of cash to contribute to campaigns, but I will try to do it with my next paycheck.
