Opulence, Poverty and Rotary

February 13, 2012

Greetings and salutations, one and all. It feels longer (perhaps that’s a slight trace of jet lag still talking), but we have only been in Bangalore for a few days now. They have been some of the fastest, most secure, most hectic, most educational days of my existence.
For those who haven’t been in the loop, I have journeyed halfway around the world with a Group Study Exchange Team from Rotary District No. 5080 to experience life and culture in Bangalore, India in the state of Karnataka.

February 7, 2012

Washingtonians will not be able to take part in the Presidential Primary frenzy this spring because of a 2011 legislative decision to axe the annual rite to save a purported $10 million in the state budget. The cancellation was proposed through Senate Bill 5119 that expires in 2013, leaving a Presidential primary an option in 2016.
In the meantime, the local political parties will be offering caucus meetings to collect public opinion on a 2012 Presidential candidate.
