Presidential contender, and fellow proponent of the no-necktie rule, Barak Obama is in town today. I had tickets to go see him speak but had too much going on here at work to make the trek.
Oh well, if I couldn't get on the attendee list, perhaps I can convince Amy to put Barak Circosta on another list (i.e. list of probable baby names).
Incidentally Barak is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is "flash of lightning". In the bible, Barak was a valiant warrior who is victorious in a battle against overwhelming odds.
If it doesn't end up on the list of rejects (to the right), then you know we are at least considering it.
