Perhaps I've been co opted by the man, but I'm happy about this. I would like to be able to automatically add a book to Goodreads when I check it out of the library or buy it, both of which happens through Amazon for me, since 99% of the books I read are ebooks now.

@6 I'm not bitching, I'm asking. I've given Washington United for Marriage hundreds of dollars and dozens of hours and lots of real estate for promoting R74 (at my house and on my body). I just am wondering how they managed to go through $12.5 million. Their ads are beautiful and they've run them quite a bit, but I still don't understand how they went through the money.

I have a question: after raising 12.5 million dollars, how are they short $5,663? I understand that we all need to volunteer to get out the vote (I did!), but, seriously, are they short of cash?

Just had breakfast here now that their full kitchen is open. The chorizo migas were perfect and the $4 special mimosa was tasty.
