Personal happenings and goings on in my life rarely make it into this blog for a couple of reasons. First, this is not really meant to be a livejournal or myspace sort of blog tell all about my life, or what I ate for breakfast. Usually the personal items happen when I move or travel. I do like to talk about my geographic location if it isn't home.
Today, one of my favorite organizations, the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life (because I love data, if you hadn't figured that out already) came out with an interesting new study. It's worth a look. They looked at the “hotbutton” social issues of our time, such as abortion, stem cell research, and gay marriage. What they found is, in some ways unsurprisingly, that most Americans are pretty middle-of-the-road about those issues.
I haven't had much time to write blog entries today, or will I tomorrow, because I'm moving. I became the house manager for my dorm, called Benton, and because of that I get this cool new room that is way bigger than my old room, and looks out on the Bay! Cool! Sunsets every evening!
Moving is a hassle, of course, but it will be over soon, and I'll be in my new room. That will be nice.
Anyway, there are some flickr photos of the room (procrastination from moving.)
