Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

Michael Estes

He is the current mayor of Traverse City, Michigan, where Kim's armoire is purported to have been built.

So, one of Kim's goals for her living space has been achieved over this weekend. A combination of chance, determination, skill, and social connections has resulted in more functional living space in the living room, a more ordered space for the videos, DVDs, and CD-ROMs, and a sense of accomplishment instilled in both myself and the woman that I love more than words can adequately express.

I would show you pictures of the open armoire and the living room, but Aaron thinks that that is a security risk. I'll just post a picture of the closed armoire and the old media center it replaced to give you a sense of how much it has changed the living dynamic.

In closing, W00T!

My brother was kidding - no one is going to decide to rob my house because they saw pictures of my 15 year old television. Snap away - after the room has bee thouroughly cleaned of course.
