Same-sex marriage

If the courts decree only a man and a woman may marry, won’t they have to define “man” and “woman”? Hmmm. Chromosome testing… genitalia inspection… pre-sex change or post-sex change…. […]

Bush speech

Oh my god, I wonder if the speech Bush is giving right now is going to be a prelude to the invasion of another “imminent threat” to the U.S.? Who […]

Howard Dean: scary

Well, Howard Dean made a fool of himself Monday night… a really scary fool. He just confirmed the decision I’d made a few days before… that I didn’t want a […]

Grammatical peeves

Verbification. Coining a verb from a noun. It makes any English purist shudder. I’d like to strangle those who originated or help perpetuate these: Summit: To reach the top of […]

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… […]

Saddam Hussein caught

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

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 […]

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 […]

About blog design

Why choose one blog template over another? One good reason: This one is readable. So many of those offered use very wide columns for the entries, or a color combination […]

Roe v. Wade

Well, today is the 30th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I know that because CNN just told me. And for what it’s worth, I will defend to the death a woman’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

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!

Editorial curiosity

Lands’ End. Hmm. Was in the “reading room” last night and noticed something for the first time: Lands’ End catalog. Why do they punctuate it that way? Shouldn’t it be […]
