A Few Items To Address

Parents came up for the holiday weekend and are leaving sometime today (sweet relief). Blogging will be short until they depart this afternoon.

I will resume Day 3 of the Hillbilly Bikers this evening. Please make sure enjoyed the first 2 days of the trip.

In the meantime, some quick notes:

  • Comments are working again. Who knows how long it will last. I will investigate haloscan this weekend. Please be patient and leave a comment when you can.

  • Schiavo sitatuation: Day 12 without food and water and she is still alive. As I commented on the day it was happening, Terri Schiavo was not dying until they removed the feeding tube. Can you imagine 12 days without food and water except a damp clothe to wet your lips? I know the point is supposed to be that she can't feel anything and therefore, it doesn't matter. 12 days and she still lives.

    Think about it.

    I saw a report this morning that the federal courts had finally decided to hear an emergency motion to review the case in it's entirety. This doesn't mean that they will. Just means they are taking it under consideration.

    If they took this long on death penalty cases, we'd have already executed the criminal, had an autopsy and the body buried for two weeks. Anybody else wondering if the courts delay is a little attempt to side step having to review the case at all?

  • Pope getting tube feeding through Nasal Gastric Tube. Ironic, don't you think? Thank God he doesn't live in Florida. The next wannabe pope could get two cardinals to swear the pope "wouldn't want to live like that" and request the tube to be removed right after we find out the "witnesses" had held a black mass. The courts would probably consider his words as accurate, considering he IS a holy man and he IS married to the church after all.

  • Johnnie Cochran died yesterday at 67. The infamous "if it doesn't fit, you must acquit" defense line of OJ Simpson. You must wonder, when he reaches the pearly gates and St Peter is standing their with the measuring stick of his life, St Peter holds it up and says, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit. Hahahahaha..." Cachang! As he pulls the lever for the "down" elevator.

  • Indonesian earth quake kills 1000. If I was a conspiracy theorist, I'd be wondering if this was caused by hollywood to distract us from Brad and Jennifer's divorce. Don't look here. Nothing to see here. Just your usual (sticking had behind their backs to pull the "earthquake" lever)...Quick, look over their: EARTHQUAKE!

  • Oil dives below $53. Holy shit! You mean it's only going to cost me 39.50 to fill my gas tank instead of $42.00. Wow!

    Stay tuned for other snarky and sometimes serious commentary.
