Things & Stuff

Well, during this last week the temerature has jumped back up into the 90 degree range.
That's a 20-to-30 degree increase in a week.
Must be global warming...or Brin snuck down here without telling me.
In the Get Your Priorities Straight Dept.:
Some students at the University of New Mexico are very upset because the cost of something near and dear to them has risen...in fact it's more than doubled.
What is it? Tuition? Books? No...birth control:
"[...]they don't have to make a choice between their birth control and their cell phone bill or their birth control and their gym membership and their birth control," Ortiz said. "These are choices women that women shouldn't have to make."
Ya know...I could've sworn a university was a place to get an education, not to get laid. And while I'm all for sharing of responsibility for birth control - why aren't the MEN in these women's lives chipping in?
Then again, there's a free, 100% effective means of birth control that probably never occurred to them. It's called abstinence.
(Yes, this is the item that today's title refers to. I couldn't resist. Sorry.)
On The View, they were talking about Georgia governor Sonny Perdue's prayer service for draught relief. Joy Behar stated the following:
"Well, they need to be praying to people who will fix global warming and take care of the environment because that's more realistic."
So we need to pray to Al Gore?
And of course, she got some Bush-bashing in. Remember, everything is Bush's fault.
Which reminds me...
Over in Hud's blog (link at left), there's a story about how OPEC will not be increasing production before their regular meeting in December.
So, despite high demand, the supply will not be increasing.
But again, that has nothing to do with ANYTHING. It's still all Bush's fault.
In Australia, Santas enrolled in a training course are being asked to NOT say "ho ho ho" because it's "derogatory to women" and "frightens children".
Wonder what my friend Kevin, who is a professional Santa, would say about this. I'll ask him, and let you all know.
Day off today. Gots lots of laundry to do, so I'm gonna kick back and do it.
Be seeing you.
