So, much to my surprise, I actually got a nice response from about the I-85 closing Monday night. Turns out that while the closing was in a work zone, the cause was actually a "tractor trailer accident which blocked both lanes of the Interstate and median for 8 hours." And even though it wasn't their fault, they apologized for the inconvenience it caused me.

You'd think the Charlotte Observer would have had an article about it or something, but I didn't see anything yesterday or today. There was an article in the Salisbury Post, however. Sounds like quite a mess.

Just received a link to a USA Today online poll on whether "under God" should be removed from the Pledge of Allegiance. Ironically, the person who forwarded the message to me is a rather conservative Christian; I'm sure he wasn't expecting to encourage voting on the minority side of this issue. Unfortunately, they've already got 1005168 votes, so I don't think my vote counts for much against the 89.81% who are in favor of retaining the words. I'm still trying to decide whether it's worth responding to the guy who emailed explaining why I voted the way I did, though I'm thinking I probably won't bother.

Breakfast: Cocoa Pebbles
Lunch: Li'l Dino
Dinner: Firebirds Rocky Mountain Grill (It's a decent restaurant; somewhat better than the mass market chains. I had the Firebirds Chicken Pasta (grilled chicken, penne pasta, asiago cream sauce, and other stuff). It was pretty good (definitely better chicken than you often get in these sorts of dishes). I had the "Mile High Peanut Butter Pie" for dessert; it's an oreo cookie crust, with thick layers of chocolate and peanut butter pie, with chocolate sauce on top. It was yummy. Not as yummy as wonderclown's peanut butter cheesecake, but still pretty yummy).

TV Watched: South Park, The Daily Show
