Truth Hits Everybody

Yesterday I discovered that there will be a promotion at Angel Stadium for Thursday's game against the KC Royals - a bobblehead of Mike Scioscia. At Brin's urging, I checked online and found single seats were readily available. But rather than pay online "convenience" fees, I instead drove an extra 1.3 miles to the stadium and bought the ticket in person.
So after I drop Brin off at the airport, I'm going to go watch my first live game this season.
Commented awhile ago about how some folks are just now finding out about Hillary's tendency to lie. Now, the Wall Street Journal talks about Obama's mistakes. There's also an article at TheHill.com about his recent comments in San Francisco.
Like I said, I'm not a fan of any of them.
In France, Brigitte Bardot is on trial for insulting Islam. She says that Islam is "destroying our country and imposing its acts".
In France, it seems the truth isn't a good defense. And evidently, they have no "freedom of speech" laws...anymore than we have a "right to not be offended".
Okay, gang. If you think ethanol and other biofuels are worth any price, read this article. Then say it again with a straight face.
If ethanol is such a good idea, why does it need huge government subsidies? Wouldn't farmers do it for profits?
Oh wait...they already do...from the subsidies.
Speaking of food, we're about ready to head out to lunch. Then I go to work whilst Brin finishes her packing.
New South Park tonight.
Be seeing you.

Starving people to death notwithstanding, the other principal problem with biofuel production at least here in the US is that it generates more pollution than it's going to save. Most of the biofuel production facilities here are being run on *charcoal*.

I say use the oil we already have to break the dependency on foreign oil. What good is it to keep our country "pristine" if we end up being owned by Iran (or China, but that's another vent) anyway? Use what we already have while we work on further developing truly "clean" resources like wind energy. (I live in ND, but I detest ethanol.) My family comes from the area of the Bakken formation, and I was up there last weekend. Most people there are all for the drilling; the only worries I heard was about keeping track of who owned mineral rights on the various properties.
