Bye bye to Rumsfeld, and it looks like the Senate might still flip. Montana was called for the Democrats. We'll have to see on Virginia.
In other news, I'm over 20,000 words. Bwahahahaha! I kind of slipped in a random scene about Christine's youth. I'm not sure how good or bad it is, but I wanted to give a little more background on the Academy. I've been trying not to be exposition fairy, but I don't want the place to be a complete mystery. And I need to set up more hints about character A and character B having a Subtle Connection.
Though, at least I'm not overexplaining the psionics this time. Hell, I don't really understand it myself, but the characters have Powers, and they can Do Stuff, and it doesn't matter all that much to the plot what they can actually do or not. Ah. Relief.
