Disco and the Republican Party

"Disco" and the "GOP" are not concepts that usually go together. Until 5 minutes ago, I certainly wouldn't have linked them together.

Let me make this short story a bit longer by letting you in on the rather odd chain of events leading me to the document below. The wife recently got her APO address. For those of you unfamiliar with APO and FPO, it is a US government service offered to American military personel and government employees stationed abroad. They get a US address - you need only pay US postage to send to it - and the Federal Government pays to deliver the package to you out wherever you are.

Ik ben een pools meisje

Thursday nights, I go straight from work to my heavily state-subsidised Dutch second language class and don't generally get home until after 10pm. This is not an optimal situation for me. I invariably do better in high intensity language classes and once per week - especially after a full work day - isn't good enough. But, the location is good - a mere three blocks from home - and I only pay €65 for a year's classes.
