Battlestar Galatica - Our world in a nutshell

I don't watch a lot of T.V. programs, but my current favorites are "The L Word" (hey, its lesbian soap!), "Arrested Development" (hey, its so intelligent and wacky, time to be canceled!) and "Battlestar Galatica".

Often, science fiction shows are able to discuss topics within our society today in a way that is distant enough to give us some fresh outlook. A recent episode brought up abortion rights, for example, if humanity was down to about 50,000 people, would abortion help to bring the destruction of mankind, and would laws to prevent abortion enable popluation growth? In general, this show, like Babylon 5, has a general message of communicating the differing views and what they could potentially mean for our society (in the time as well as in the future). I like smart t.v.

But I am still unsure of where I am going. Not sure if I ever will.

Roll Out

Well, after over nine months of unemployment, I have accepted an offer for a position at a mid-sized law firm.  So, the "strange normal...
