My guy threw in the towel while he still had a ghost to give. I can’t decide now who to officially hope for. I honestly think that Obama has eight great years as president some day and if the next eight years are his, he will do an enormous amount of good for this country. […]
We had our big family reunion last weekend. Diane blogged about it over on traffas.net so I don’t have to delve into it here, except to say that my family is slightly more dysfunctional than I previously realized. The kids dug my ‘copter, though, so I felt cool. New Year’s was fun. We had the […]
Edwards – Obama
Oh, how I love election years. It’s like my World Cup if I were a soccer fan, or a World Series that only comes along once every couple years. This is the best yet, with both teams getting in fights like a hockey game. Kerry knocked Bush’s helmet off the other day. Then Andy Card […]

Today, for the first time since 1882, we humans get to observe something spectacular. Of course, what does Mother Nature Kansas have in store for us? Overcast skies. I guess my custom transit-watching apparatus made of welding-glass, packing tape, and my grandfather’s binoculars gets to be put in storage for eight years. I love Rush […]

The brightest star in the firmament
I’m getting a big kick out of the book “Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them”. Funny as hell. Al Franken is very good and I’m sorry I never got a hold of this before. You should check it out.
