Here You Come Again

2008-04-03 - 10:52 a.m.

We finally got some rain at about 1:30 this morning. Seemed to be more of a light drizzle than actual rain.

Right now the skies are a nice gunmetal gray, but they are calling for sun later. We'll see.


If you ever needed a reason not to vote for Obama, here it is - he says he'd consider appointing Al Gore to a cabinet post if he's elected.

So either Bill comes back to the White House or Gore gets a position to push global warming and convince President Obama to sign any global warming bill that comes across his desk. And don't tell me Gore wouldn't try.

What would be next - Jeremiah Wright to the Council on Race Relations?

No thanks.


Here's an article from Newsweek entitled "The Cooling World". It's dated 1975.

Any of it sound familiar?


Here's a fine example of how school districts waste money. A district in Washington is considering closing a school due to lack of funds...which is interesting, considering that the district is buying home electronics for eighty of its administrators. We're talking HDTVs, digital cameras, and MP3 players.

Ah, but the HDTV is work-related, "because it's hooked up to a computer and used like a monitor". You can go to Fry's and get a nice LCD monitor for less than $300.



A Pizza Hut delivery driver in Des Moines was almost killed in an armed robbery attempt. The driver, a single dad with one daughter, turned the tables and used his own registered handgun to wound the robber and save his own life.

What did the Pizza Hut manager do? Suspend the driver, supposedly until the investigation is complete. In a previous story, a Pizza Hut VP of human resources says drivers are prohibited from carrying guns "because we believe that that is the safest for everybody". So they'd rather employees get killed by someone instead of being allowed to defend themselves? They may terminate the driver when it's all over, even if he's cleared.

Another driver said, "...even if the other guy was trying to rob him, it's a measly 20 bucks." Crooks have killed for less, especially if they think you're holding out on them.

Far as I'm concerned, the driver did what he felt he had to do to defend himself. He cooperated with police when they arrived, didn't do anything stupid. Get him back to work.


Well, I need to get going. It's my day off, but I still have a few things to do today.

Be seeing you.
