Okay, so I won't be getting out of this world alive. On the other hand I may be getting out just in the nick of time.
Do I really want to hang around and see my country shift further to the right? I think not.
Do I want to see the re-selection of GWB? I think not.
Do I want to live through the pages of Orwell's 1984? I think not.
Do I want to see the "faith-based initiatives" put squarely in place? I think not.
Do I want to see the environmental laws rolled backed? I think not.
Do I want to visit the Grand Canyon and learn about 'creationism'? I think not.
Do I want to live under the Patriot Act and the office of Homeland Security? I think not.
Do I want a president that says "It feels good" to drop massive amounts of bombs on populated areas? I think not.

Health Update
Received results of lung biopsy. Happy New Year! The news was not good. It confirmed the presence of an aggressive fast-acting cancer that has metastasized from my esophagus into my right lung. Without treatment (chemo) I have been given "months not years" to live. With treatment maybe a little longer but with troublesome side-effects. I am electing to go with no further treatments. The oncologist didn't think this was a bad decision given the options.
