It was very different than I thought it would be. Worth seeing.
I’m a little backlogged on book reviews, which is one of my intents with this blog. That would make me “bookblogged”. Dur. I tore through “Fatherland” by Robert Harris this weekend. It’s a detective story set in 1964 Nazi Germany; a counterfactual account of how the world might have been if Germany had not lost […]
They could have called it the Rust Belt Series or the White Flight Series… The Tigers looked like the Fish in the World Series, after looking like Hall of Famers against the Yankees. They simply did not execute. The Cardinals played good ball, despite being a sort of mediocre team. On to 2007… Go Yanks.
Dennis Hopper has been hawking retirement planning services on television. What’s that about? Would you trust Dennis Hopper with your money?
In two separate trips during August and September, I visited Las Vegas three times, plus six national parks.
The fall colors were thrilling, especially since I neglected the fall foliage peak in Iowa.
I was in Ames yesterday for the Iowa State University Ag Career Day. I went to recruit, but since I had nothing to recruit for, I was just there for public outreach purposes.
I watched a show on PBS about theories regarding the failure of the first Jamestown colony. Instead of disease, starvation, or warfare, some redneck doctor thinks the colonists were victims of a Catholic plot to poison Protestants.
Every October Gillette advertises its razors during the baseball playoffs. And every year they promote a new model with an extra blade in it. They’re up to five per razor. When I’m an old man will Gillette razors have forty blades in them? Will each additional blade shave my beard that much closer? The Gillette […]
Charlie interviewed James Baker. I am a James Baker freak. Best Secretary of State in my lifetime, hands down. He is very conservative and highly partisan, but also very pragmatic. It makes me sad when I look at the bunch of retards in the W administration. Baker had a lot of slanted criticisms of the […]
Spare me from these idiots. Earlier, Jimmy Rollins (yes, you read it right) was analyzing the psychological effect on Alex Rodriguez of batting eighth in the lineup during the playoffs. I looked up Jimmy Rollins’ postseason stats and, oh, there aren’t any. And then there’s Steve Lyons, who I remember from my childhood as a […]
Well, that was a quick fade by the Yankees. 200 million dollars for nothing. I hope to see the end of Johnson, Rodriquez, Giambi, and Sheffield in the bargain this winter. I’m getting sick of Jeter and Rivera having to carry those guys. And Mike Mussina might be gone this winter too. When the Yankees […]
I just love the Tommy Lasorda ads for the baseball playoffs.
Mark Foley says he is not a pedophile (are you sure?). I can see how the Congressional leadership would blow something like this off. It probably looked a little iffy to them at first, and then it was hard to believe it was true. But this whole episode just lays bare the cynicism in Congress. […]
It’s that time of year again. I’ll be parking my butt in front of the TV for the baseball playoffs. As usual, the only drawback is having to watch the games on FOX, with their stupid sound effects and Tim Carver’s idiotic analysis. I think the Yankees will be all over the Tigers. Detroit was […]
Have you heard about this stupid pedophile homosexual Republican congressman who resigned the other day? My god, what an idiot. And Newt Gingrich is saying the House’s Republican leadership didn’t lower the boom on him earlier because they were afraid of being accused of gay-bashing. Please. They live for gay-bashing. If this guy was in […]
I learned from a friend that Great Kills Park, where I worked for about four years, is radioactive. Woo-ha! The park used to be a landfill, and some radioactive equipment was buried there. The locals are nervous. Officials, including my employer the National Park Service, say it’s not dangerous, then again officials say a lot […]
