I’ve been slacking off as far as blogging goes. Not sure why, but oh well.

People are claiming Palin is finally becoming less popular with the electorate. I gotta say, according to the chart in that link, it looks the McCain-Palin ticket has dropped. Her drop started earlier, but for the most part it mirrors McCain’s. So I hesitate to say it’s really about her. Not that I’d feel bad if I’m wrong.

Schweitzer spoke on the MSU campus the other day. A pretty nice turnout, too. There were some anti-Schweitzer protesters there, too. Five to ten, maybe. Signs included “Election fraud isn’t funny” and “Bully” (a couple with that). Sounds like hand-wringing pussy talk, but what do I know. There were also people handing out some kind of literature on the Federal Reserve. Ron Paul-types, presumably. Nice timing, if nothing else.

Working for a university gives me certain benefits, one of which is discounted tuition and fees. So I’m taking suggestions for further education. A CS master’s? History or philosophy? Underwater basket-weaving? My future is in your hands.

    Does MSU offer a masters in something like political science? Get that, then go to law school. Law schools love people with engineering or hard science backgrounds instead of the philosophy and liberal arts crowd. Then get a job with the EFF, ACLU, or similar. I’d just be happy to finally finish a bachelors, even if I have to get a BA in business information systems instead of a BS in CS.

    I have approximately zero desire to go to law school. I like my current occupation, too. This would be more because I’m interested in the subject.
