Yesterday I felt so tired when I returned home from the prison that I wrote this, set it to be published right after midnight, and went to bed. The meeting was excellent. Three new men joined our CoDA group there. We did some insightful digging and made excellent progress. I cannot say more without violating confidence, except that I could not be more proud of my guys. I am not current with replies. Today is a day for catch-up and recovery.

It was not out yet. I’ll put up two tomorrow.

Keep saying NO to Big Oil!
From Business Week: The New Jersey Senate passed a bill that would allow gay and lesbian couples to marry, in the face of Republican Governor Chris Christie’s promise to veto it.
The Senate voted 24-16 in favor of the measure, sending it to the Assembly, which plans to consider it Feb. 16. Democrats, who control both houses of the Legislature, have made gay marriage a priority for 2012, two years after they failed to pass a similar bill supported by then-Governor Jon Corzine.
When Christie vetoes it, pass it again!
From Truth Dig: The prolonged Republican primary campaign appears to be taking a toll on independent voters’ faith in Mitt Romney. According to the latest Pew poll, only a minority of independents now describe Romney as “honest and trustworthy” and slightly more than half of independent voters now favor Barack Obama in a race against Romney, who led the president in that category only a month ago.
As is pointed out every four years or so, so-called independent voters typically decide presidential elections.
It’s still way too early to depend on polls, but this is positive news, especially since Obama does even better compared to the Frothmeister.
