After the Super Bowl, Brin and I finally made it to the Park last night. We renewed her annual pass, and then caught some of Scot Bruce's show.

While we were heading out, we did some window shopping. I found a copy of Dr. Syn on DVD. Then homeward where we subsequently fell down.


We also got the following word from Bob Chance. He's out of the hospital, cured of the infection that dragged him back in. No word if there will be any further doctoring in the immediate future.

Also, Cero's is supposed to re-open in mid-February. We'll see what we'll see.


Whilst in the twilight between asleep and awake, the following came to me:

Milpitas Mike, the Philosophical Sunroof, says: "It rains on the just and unjust alike...but if you close me, it's a lot less messy."

Well, I thought it was funny.


Evidently, there is a line in the stimulus package that could prevent the review of any earmarks that are slipped in. Rep. Jeff Flake has argued with Appropriations Chairman David Obey about this line, and Obey refused to discuss it on the House floor.

It seems Obey - and his staff - have a history of blowing people off.


First Timothy Geithner, now Tom Daschle.

What a difference ten years can make.


Want to make money by selling Obama T-shirts?

Better move fast.


Britain's "green guru" says that having more than two children puts "an unbearable burden on the planet", and that couples with more than two children are "irresponsible".

I know I'm doing MY part.

Oh, and this guy already has two kids. If he really means it, he'll have his wife sterilized so she can't have any more children. He could get a vasectomy, but his wife could still that wouldn't eliminate the possibility that they could be "irresponsible".


Hey, remember how the car companies showed up (in their corporate jets) to say they HAD to be bailed out, to save American jobs?

Turns out they weren't too specific on which America the jobs would be saved.


Dear Bob Lai: has this ever happened to you?


Okay. Things to do before work.

Shower's free.

Be seeing you.

Closest I've seen was a graphic showing televangelist Billy Graham in a story (obituary) about rock impresario Bill Graham. The hamster was likely a 'placeholder' graphic that never got replaced (though you can bet the template is now stored with a blank spot).
