Is that an oxymoron? I’m sure somewhere in this blog, I’ve ranted about lawyers. And if I haven’t, I should have. But every once in a while, one redeems himself. I recently received this legal argument that even if the UN Security Council finds Iraq in material breach of Resolution 1441, war cannot be legal… Continue reading A Good Lawyer?
Still being lazy, and just passing along a couple of links I recently stumbled on. Fact Squad Radio presents a collection of informative and amusing MP3 clips relating to issues recently in the news. For the sake of the bandwidth-challenged (which includes me when I’m at home), I wish they could also provide text transcripts… Continue reading Quickie Links
Okay, I’m getting lazy. I haven’t posted anything here in a while, and now I’m stooping to just copying some email I received. So much for my quest for originality. But, since a couple of people I forwarded this to commented favorably on it, maybe I can get away with using it here.

My power came back on about 1 PM today, almost nine days after it went out about 7 PM on Sunday, Feb 16, as a result of the severe ice storm that hit central Kentucky. As my routine slowly returns to normal (or what passes… Continue reading Let there be light ….
Posting here will probably be sparse for a few days. Central Kentucky was hit with a major ice storm Saturday night and Sunday. Trees and power lines down everywhere. A lot of the area is powerless and probably will be for a week or more. Last major ice storm in 1994 left my house dark… Continue reading Ice Storm
Just a quickie; I had to post this link somebody sent me for an awesome duet from the world’s greatest warmongers, W and Tony. Unfortunately for those with slow connections, it’s a 5MB Quicktime file.
Yeah, I know, I’ve said that before. Unfortunately, I’m afraid upcoming world events will compel me to say it again fairly frequently from time to time. Actually, now that I’ve said that, I think the rest of this entry is going to be more thoughts on blogging than thoughts on war. When I originally started… Continue reading War Sucks
Being both a geek and a horse person, I have long known that duct tape is one of those essential items without which life as we know it would come to a halt. But I’m still amused by our Ministry of Paranoia suggesting that it will protect us from all the dangers of the Axis… Continue reading Duct Tape Wars?
The weekly police log always seems to have a few entries that make one say “Huh?”, and this week is no exception. Intermingled with all the usual theft, vandalism, scalping (I hope that referred to tickets) are some headscratchers • 2:10 AM Sunday “alcohol intoxication, subject in and out of consciousness, throwing up, unable to… Continue reading Campus Crime
Y’know, maybe getting rid of spam completely isn’t such a good idea. A few messages now and then are good for amusement purposes. Like the one this morning promising “Permanent Larger Erections!” I think permanent would really be inconvenient.
