This last Saturday, June 25th, Bryna and I finally tied the knot. It was a beautiful sunny day, we erected a giant maypole and spoke our vows. We took a brief honeymoon at Long Beach, WA and now are working on thank you cards. I'll get back to blogging in a week or so, I have some news about the County Council races and a brand-new feature for this blog. But all that can wait. For now, here is a picture of us on our wedding day.

Congrats to you and your bride!
I remember a piece you wrote awhile back about marriage, and the the not so positive feedback you recieved. I want to “endose” your decision to commit to a life partner, and wish you both all the best. As a person who has experienced a failed marriage and then gone on to a 29 year {so far} marriage, I believe having a life partner makes for a more “full” life experience. We know what the end is, so it’s all about the journey with the best you hook up with! Family and friends. Best Wishes

“Beneficial reuse” of dioxin at Cornwall Landfill

The public is generally unaware that a "cleanup action" at Cornwall Landfill involves depositing hazardous waste more toxic than the material already on site.
