Vote NO on Massachusetts Ballot Questions in 2010!

Posted by kayholt on October 30, 2010 in politics |

I’ll make this as easy as possible for you: Every Massachusetts voter should VOTE NO on all three ballot questions on November 2nd 2010. Question 3 would cut our sales tax in half, but if you like icy roads salted and potholes filled, VOTE NO on question 3. Question 2 makes it easier for developers […]

Rises and Autumns

Posted by kayholt on October 13, 2010 in family |

Stand There and Watch Me Burn

Posted by kayholt on October 1, 2010 in family, health |

This post has multiple foci, but I’m confident you’re all grown-up enough to handle that. The subject line is from a song of adults by adults for adults. Listen (and read) responsibly. This post has daddy issues: Recently, I found myself feeling resentful about my dad’s suicide. It’s a normal emotion, even predictable, but I […]
