Hartford Politicking


ATTENTION HARTFORD RESIDENTS: I'm currently collaborating on a story about this year's voting process in Hartford, in response to the current campaigning and to perhaps gauge current voting trends in the Hartbeat. I'm wondering if you could PLEASE answer a few questions for me in the comments section or on the Coffee Rhetoric Facebook fan page.  I would greatly appreciate it and PLEASE be candid with your answers. This is an opportunity to have your voice heard! I would love to be able to feature some of your answers in my article. You'll be helping me out a lot! Thanks in advance! 


  • Are you currently registered to vote? Why/Why not? 
  • How do you feel about politics? And did you vote in the recent primary? Why/Why not? 
  • Two candidates ran for Mayor of Hartford. Did you vote for either? Why/Why not?
  • No Democratic women were endorsed for city council. Thoughts?

Changements

 Path of least resistance: In physics, the path of least resistance is always taken by objects moving through a system. For example, water flowing downhill follows the path of least resistance as it is pulled downward by gravity. Electricity flowing through a circuit behaves similarly; while every available path has some current through it, the amount of current through each path is inversely proportional to its electrical resistance. Atmospheric disturbances (storms) flow on the path of least resistance by flowing toward zones of low barometric pressure, where lower air density offers less impedance to the storm system than higher pressure zones.

... So many changes, so little time.
I've been diverted, and have turned off of another exit. I feel... good; this is a good thing. As frazzling as change can be, I've grown accustomed to viewing each sudden development as a chance to breathe life into another entity; as the opportunity to explore, expound upon, to build. In the midst of these changes, I've had a nervous breakthrough which has manifested into a creative spurt. I love kicking through writer's/creative blocks. It's almost like playing a round of Tetris... once you fit a puzzle piece in its rightful place, all the rest disintegrates and explodes like fireworks, allowing the player to move on to the next level. I'm excited and extremely hopeful. Stay tuned.

Umm....

This past week I've been home from work, coughing up my last lung... grimacing at what's been coming up out of my throat, blowing my nose, taking any drugs and cough sizzurp (yes I said sizzurp) I can get my hands on, whining and cursing my illness for I haven't been this sick, in a long time. ... I feel a lot better and felt inspired enough to compose a witty blog post. But, I just realized that today is April 12, and I haven't done my damn taxes yet. ... Shit. Maybe I should get on that like, now before The Man shakes me down hardcore.

Chocolate Drops

Your weekend assignment is to learn the lyrics to Tay Zonday's song. You WILL be quizzed on Monday, so study hard! And NO it's not about scat play. Perverts!
"Chocolate Rain

Chocolate Rain Some stay dry and others feel the pain Chocolate Rain A baby born will die before the sin

Chocolate Rain The school books say it can't be here again Chocolate Rain The prisons make you wonder where it went

Chocolate Rain Build a tent and say the world is dry Chocolate Rain Zoom the camera out and see the lie

Chocolate Rain Forecast to be falling yesterday Chocolate Rain Only in the past is what they say

Chocolate Rain Raised your neighborhood insurance rates Chocolate Rain Makes us happy 'livin in a gate

Chocolate Rain Made me cross the street the other day Chocolate Rain Made you turn your head the other way

(Chorus) Chocolate Rain History quickly crashing through your veins Chocolate Rain Using you to fall back down again [Repeat]

Chocolate Rain Seldom mentioned on the radio Chocolate Rain Its the fear your leaders call control

Chocolate Rain Worse than swearing worse than calling names Chocolate Rain Say it publicly and you're insane

Chocolate Rain No one wants to hear about it now Chocolate Rain Wish real hard it goes away somehow

Chocolate Rain Makes the best of friends begin to fight Chocolate Rain But did they know each other in the light?

Chocolate Rain Every February washed away Chocolate Rain Stays behind as colors celebrate

Chocolate Rain The same crime has a higher price to pay chocolate Rain The judge and jury swear it's not the face

(Chorus)

Chocolate Rain Dirty secrets of economy Chocolate Rain Turns that body into GDP

Chocolate Rain The bell curve blames the baby's DNA Chocolate Rain But test scores are how much the parents make

Chocolate Rain 'Flippin cars in France the other night Chocolate Rain Cleans the sewers out beneath Mumbai

Chocolate Rain 'Cross the world and back its all the same Chocolate Rain Angels cry and shake their heads in shame

Chocolate Rain Lifts the ark of paradise in sin Chocolate Rain Which part do you think you're 'livin in?

Chocolate Rain More than 'marchin more than passing law Chocolate Rain Remake how we got to where we are
