The Talk

Watching TV – naturally – but today is the Sunday shows – “Face the Nation” – and there is a discussion of race going on. Great piece about how things have come along since the early 60s and integration/voting rights were initially attempted.

Raisin bran with a splash of SOY?? – not

OMFG.  What the world REALLY needs is Sam Kinnison back. Sam, if you’re up there – if there’s any WAY you can work something out with the REALLY Big Guy – please do so.  The world is rife with idiots and imbeciles that need to be called on it.

Watching Sunday Political Shows

I was never really sure what I was going to put on this blog beyond just general geek stuff, but after my last post about the over the top antics of those “open-minded” liberals, I have discovered the purpose for this blog – commentary.  Bear with me – this is going to get a lot of the “Who writes this blog” stuff out there.  No one will likely ever read it,...
