Things weren’t perfect, though. Conor was between jobs and we didn’t have much money. Our early forays into home ownership had proven fruitless because we couldn’t afford so much as a fixer upper in the middle of Compton (whereas now we can afford a nice 3 bedroom in the heart of Compton with minimal bullet hole damage. Yay, us!) We hadn’t yet figured out the whole ‘when are we going to breed’ question to our mutual satisfaction and Conor kept nagging me about getting cats, which I was opposed to because I thought I’d end up having to do all the work of taking care of them.
I don’t agree with everything he does and I’m not sure that I fully agree with how he does it. But I think that what Julian Assange and wikileaks are doing is necessary to balance the extremely powerful and wealthy forces working against the interests of the people. I think we need to stop treating him as an enemy of the people and recognize him as someone with great power who is on our side. For better or worse. He might not be the kind of hero we want but I think he’s the hero we really need right now.
