Cool Water

2009-03-23 - 12:12 p.m.

So I got some shopping done on Friday, including a new water fountain for Solange. The one I purchased awhile ago started spewing brown flecks into the water, and the pump wasn't running too well. So I replaced it with this model. I've discovered that the website sells replacement pumps as well as filters, so if the pump dies I can easily replace it.

There was some concern that Solange might not like the new fountain, but I shouldn't have worried:


When I woke up Sunday morning, it was pouring rain. Big time.

Literally twenty minutes later, it had stopped. Completely. The sun came out and we were selling miniature golf when we opened (about two hours later).

It was windy and COLD, but everything was dry.


Jeffery Jena wrote a column for Big Hollywood about the political response to the AIG bonuses.

Also, Neal Boortz talks about it here.

I quote from the Boortz article:

For the first time that I can remember the Imperial Congress of the United States has passed a law establishing a confiscatory tax to be levied on certain individuals -- not for the purpose of raising revenue -- but strictly for the purpose of punishment. The political class has determined, without the benefit of due process or a trial, that the actions of the AIG employees in accepting these bonuses was a crime, and that crime shall be punished by seizure of the money. Legislation to single out and punish someone without due process is constitutionally forbidden. But who cares? What does the Constitution mean any more anyway?

Good question.


Okay, onward into the day.

Be seeing you.
