The best saying of the weekend was from a Texan who (in response to questions about Bush's Crawford ranch), said about the president:
"He's all hat and no cattle."

I may have finally completed the first draft of my next animated short, tenatively titled "Uprising," which will be produced by my Computer Animation III class at Hampshire in the Fall. I'm nervous about the size and scope of this project given the 3-month production schedule, so I'll probably write a lot about it here.
