> Have you found your feelings about her to change over time?

Hmm. No. I still think of her as 'the avatar'. There is something... Canned. Packaged. Pre-processed about her.

When I read about the simple things she says having been passed through focus groups before hand... That sort of sums it up. There is much about her that feels to me to be the product of many focus groups.

I still think it is strange that she was at my undergraduate University around the time I was there and she wasn't a public figure at that time. But perhaps not. I don't know. We don't have university year books or class pics or anything like that. But honestly, it wouldn't turn out to surprise me if she wasn't cooked up from a lab in Britain or something. She does not speak with an accent to a kiwi ear. Most emphatically not.

I am seeing more aspets of avatar-ishness in our other ministers now, too.

I don't know how I feel about it.

I know they still earn far too much money compared to the amount of money other people are expected to live off. I know they still aren't progressing people on their qualifications or apprentiseships etc etc the way they are supposed to be processed. I know they still have only a select few being offered all the work.

I don't suppose my feelings about her have changed, at all. I think she gets things right a lot of the time. I think we are lucky we get more time than anybody else in the world to see how all the other leaders handle situations first before coming to a deliberated and careful decision as to how we will handle it.

I think that is the situation really.

> I wasn't 100% behind our governor, but he's handling things really well. One of the first things he did was unequivocally shut down any racist BS against Chinese and Asian citizens here. It was getting weird. Crazy where people go under pressure.

Good. That is good to hear. You are California -- right?
