I’ve had hardly any time to blog since going back to work. But here are some soundbites…

You remember the Water Bureau employees who tried to buy the Portland reservoir covers on Ebay? Well, it seems that an investigation has determined that they didn’t break any policy or use company time inappropriately. No word on what’s happening to the covers themselves.

The current-poll map at the electoral vote predictor today shows a small gain for Bush, but with Kerry still in the lead. The predictive map shows Kerry way ahead. After meeting yesterday evening with a group of women to discuss women’s issues and the upcoming Legislative session, I’m more convinced than ever that Bush must go. So it’s no surprise to me that there’s a large gender gap between the candidates, with men prefering Bush and women prefering Kerry.

South African adventurer Mike Horn on Thursday became the first man to circumnavigate the Arctic Circle without motorized transport, completing a more than two-year solo odyssey by ski, kayak and foot. Because it was there, I supposed. In 2000 he was the first man to circumnavigate the equator without motorized transport. I wonder what he’ll do now?

Britain agreed yesterday to a U.S. request for UK troops to move to dangerous areas near Baghdad. It’s a politically risky move for Tony Blair. Perhaps it’s to make up for 300 of those “well trained” Iraqi troops who ran away?
