On what historical date did being smart and honest become a sin? 

This is what passes for news coverage:

There is nothing more entertaining than watching the media elite question the elected elite and elite talking heads about elitism.  Brilliant theatre.   

When Will It Stop?

Monday, April 7th, 2008

When will Sen. Clinton’s lies stop? When will she and her husband stop destroying the Democratic Party that has been so good to them, so forgiving of them? I can’t watch her or him on television anymore, just like I can’t watch McCain and Bush.

It cost me 70 dollars to fill my car with gas yesterday and my tank wasn’t even empty. If a person is working for 10 bucks an hour, that means he/she would have to work 7 hours of an 8 hour day just to fill up my car which gets commendable gas mileage… If a person is working for 20 bucks an hour, that means he/she would have to work for 3.5 hours just to fill up my car.

How much do you make per hour?

Road Runners, Part Two

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

No wonder I’m fascinated with Road Runners.  They eat rattlesnakes.  And they are part of the Cuckoo family.  Rattlesnake mommas.  Another chapter in my new story.  The blurb below is funny. 

Here is the Best Description I Found:  The legendary roadrunner is famous for its distinctive appearance, its ability to eat rattlesnakes and its preference for scooting across the American deserts, as popularized in Warner Bros. cartoons.  The roadrunner is a large, black-and-white, mottled ground bird with a distinctive head crest.  It has strong feet, a long, white-tipped tail and an oversized bill.  It ranges in length from 20 to 24 inches from the tip of its tail to the end of its beak.  It is a member of the Cuckoo family (Cuculidae), characterized by feet with 2 forward toes and 2 behind.

When the roadrunner senses danger or is traveling downhill, it flies, revealing short, rounded wings with a white crescent.  But it cannot keep its large body airborne for more than a few seconds, and so prefers walking or running (up to 17 miles per hour) usually with a clownish gait.
