On this trip, Hertz gave me a brand new red Toyota Matrix as my rental car. I really like this vehicle -- lots of room and nice styling. I'm not going to replace my Saturn anytime soon, but if I was in the market, I'd consider this, especially if there was a hybrid version.
Work has gone well; I was there late last night getting some bugs fixed, but I left today about 6:30 and had dinner with former Austinites Alex and Kathryn out at Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi's, a cool Italian restaurant in Mountain View. I'm back at my hotel room now, and I'm pretty exhausted.
One final note: I'm very glad to see the strong support that Donna Howard got in today's HD48 special election. She almost hit 50%, and I think she's positioned very strong to win the runoff election, something that will put her in a strong position for the primary and general election. I heard her talk at Democracy for Texas, and I think she'll be a strong representative for west Travis County.
