Where to begin.

Ventura appointed Dean Barkley to replace Wellstone until election results are official. Which is actually quite cool. Barkley and Wellstone were friends, if I recall. When they were running against each other in the last senate election they would carpool to debates together. And Barkley seems like a pretty Wellstone-ish guy. Unlike Mondale.

I’m not excited about this election. I’m voting more to avoid a Republican majority in the senate than for Mondale.

And as for governor, there’s no one. I sort of like Ken Pentel. But he has a zero percent chance of winning. Especially when his plan is to increase the taxes of the top 10% in the state.

Which is not a bad idea.

So yesterday my mom’s cat, who we’ve had for 16-1/2 years, wasn’t doing well. They took her into the vet and she was diagnosed with liver disease. She was severely dehydrated and shaky. So they kept her overnight.

My mom called me this morning at 8 am to let me know that Cinnamon wasn’t getting better and it looked like she had cancer as well, so they euthanized her.

I’m not a cat person, but when a being is in your life for 16 years, they become special to you. Mom was shaken up. I know Cinnamon was definitely her cat. She was a part of the family.

So that sucks.
