Actually, I think it does have the heads up the other ends. They're just up there so far they appear to be poking out of the other side.

Hi,

I do not know if I still qualify as a physics' geek (AB physics U of C, and MS physics UW), since I do not remember too much. I still think that you and too many others have a bad attitude about such things. It is certainly fine to vent (I have written several critical e-mails to my supposedly Republican senator Gordon Smith comparing him to Ron Wyden the Democrat who has been a pol for his entire life--brutal eh?); but when it comes time to vote, one must do the right thing no matter how unappealing. Politics is all about getting the best that you can. If you do not do that, then I do question your patriotism (intelligence, sanity--pick the one which annoys you the most since they all apply). Even if you know that you are only moving the ball for very short yardage, you have to stay in the game. Losing is guaranteed if you do not. I frankly see it a sign of a weak mind and character to just want to pick up the ball and go home when things get challenging. I do agree with trying to get real conservatives elected, but when that fails, voting against people such as Pelosi is the adult thing to do.
