  • Illegal aliens are… illegal!

    If they are allowed to stay in the United States, under any condition, isn’t the citizenship of every legal U.S. citizen devalued by that much? By definition, illegal aliens are… illegal. Why should they receive a single right or benefit… Read More ›

  • Saddam Hussein caught

    My first reaction was: “Woot!! They got him!!!” But in the same moment: “Arghhh, Bush will be re-elected for sure.”

  • Insomnia

    Insomnia, unfortunately, is not lethal.

  • In the beginning…

    Hello, world. It’s me again. Perhaps only briefly this time, but who knows. I need someone to talk to, and have no one, so maybe here I’ll just talk to everyone. Or to no one. If a blog is written… Read More ›

  • Excuses, excuses

    Oh joy. The “peaceniks” in Washington said Bush just wants Iraq’s oil. It’s not unreasonable to assume that might be at least a part of his motivation. Well, damned if he hasn’t now come up with a pretext for seizing… Read More ›

  • Star Search

    Been watching “Star Search” on TV. Really got sucked into it the night I saw Tiffany Evans sing. Wow! That little girl knocked my socks off!! I thoroughly expect to see her name in lights someday. You go, girl!

  • Absent Eagles

    Looks like the Eagles decided not to show up at The Vet today. Damnit. I was really looking forward to seeing them in the Super Bowl.

  • About this Iraq thing

    I’m sorry, people, but it sure looks to me like warmongering on Bush’s part. Why is he so anxious to rush in there and start a war, anyway? He was ready to go before he even consulted with our allies… Read More ›

  • Love those geeks

    Expecting some tech support today on that annoying runtime error I’m getting. So nice to have a son in the business!
