Go Cory Go!

Dear William --

I just got off the stage at our victory rally here in Newark, and before I go celebrate with family, friends, staff, volunteers, and other supporters who made this incredible night possible, I wanted to send you a quick note.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for not surrendering to cynicism about politics. Thank you for believing that better things are possible -- and thank you for believing that we can make them real if we work together.

I also want to take a moment to remember a great New Jerseyan and a great American. Earlier this year, Senator Frank Lautenberg passed away. He served his country during war -- the last veteran of World War II to serve in the Senate. He was an entrepreneur who built an international company from scratch. His tireless work in the Senate positively impacted the lives of millions of Americans.

Tonight's victory means that I will have the privilege to finish out Senator Lautenberg's term. It also means we'll have another election next year for a full six-year term.

So let's celebrate tonight's achievement. We earned this together. And as we celebrate, let us recommit ourselves to continuing our work and bringing even more people together to serve our nation. Even with our great history, I believe our best days are ahead of us.

Thank you for being on this journey with me,

Cory

Please Help Me Find A Good Reliable Home

Friends:

I have come to the really difficult decision that I need to give my beloved dog Sidney to a new home. After a ton of consideration and anguish I feel that this is the best thing I can do for him. He is a two (maybe three) year old mutt. When I got him from Pet Connection in Shawnee, they weren't even sure what his breed was so it's hard to say what exactly his breed is. The best I've come up with is a doberman/beagle mix. The shelters that I have contacted say 98% of them are not good environments and mostly are full. That's why I am trying to contact people I know rather than just dropping him off at a shelter where I won't know where he goes. He is a sweet dog and craves attention and the problem is that I can only give him so much attention. What ideally would happen is that I would find a willing person to take him...one who would have a yard that he could run and play in. He gets along with everyone, and most dogs as well. If you know of anyone that could possibly give him a loving home, please contact me here or email. My email is ohthebilldotcom@gmail.com and my twitter handle is @ohthebill. Here are two pictures of Sidney give you a better idea of what he looks like. If you don't have any interest, please forward this email to someone who I might not have contact with, it might make all the difference in the world.

Thanks so much,
Bill

I Love John Legend

Especially when he gets up in his higher register...there is just something about it. Love love love him.

If You're Fed Up

So I'm not going to go into a whole diatribe here about how horrible the government shutdown is or how sick of I am of the political posturing from the GOP (The party of death since they want to rip healthcare from people who don't have any...and as a result people will literally die.) No, I get sick of reading blogs telling people what they should and shouldn't do with their political angst. So I simply will give you, my dear readers, an opportunity to utilize your power as a citizen and register to vote and vote dammit.

It's free, and also takes out a lot of frustration, at least personally, that I have with the current system. So if you are not registered, please click the link above and register..it's the single most effective thing that any citizen of this country can do. It's free, and it's also your responsibility. Tangent over. Well not all the way over. If you are interested to see what the deadlines for different states are to be registered to vote, you'll find them here.

All That Is Old Is New Again

Digging through some random stuff today I found my old "OhTheBill" logo. I still love it actually it sort of reminds me of the new york yankees logo.
