dry but at least the sunsets are purty good

no rain to speak of here, but maybe the mussells in florida got watered---a foot of rain or something in the panhandle---the sunset is starting to emerge from behind the plaza as it slowly moves to the south----

de-privatizing socialized medicine

Anti-"socialized medicine" fanatics can quibble, (as they've done with the Wilkersons and the Frosts), over who can and who can't afford private health insurance, but it doesn't matter whether my family earns $40,000 or $120,000 per year. It doesn't matter whether comprehensive health insurance would cost us $7,500 or $12,000
per year. It doesn't matter whether we need file a claim for $1 or $1,000,000. It doesn't matter because health care has already been socialized - privately
socialized - by people who are pushing the costs higher and higher, at the expense of hardworking Americans who don't think our salaries should be drastically reduced by these exorbitant costs while the insurance industry continues to post ever-larger profits.

It's time to de-privatize socialized medicine.

what's in a name?

a lot, i'd say----i'm still recovering from johntravious dixon and his little brother demontay who were pictured in sunday's paper----but this?

Commander Flex Plexico :This guy is a walking action figure. This one almost defies
analysis, because what kind of parents call their kid "Flex?" Awesome ones, that's what kind

there's a great breeze from the northwest tonight----new air, cool air, fall-----------

the water bowl

dexter is mesmerized by the dog's water bowl, splashing around in it and making a big ol mess--he also likes to look through the water bowl to watch his feet on the floor--poor little retarded kitten----

what i did yesterday

robert and i walked down to check out the sweet auburn festival, which was a little sad, and then on over to oakland cemetery for their little "sunday in the park" thing----a beautiful day for a walk even if it was a little warm---they had an interesting master plan for a long linear park from the capitol to the cemetery that would be pretty wonderful if it were to ever get built---

graphic design disasters

you just gotta wonder what they were thinking---just so wierd on so many levels---


"Zillions of photos, videos, blogs, and more. Some of them have to be good."


"shame, disgrace, and ruin"

too many of us have forgotten what made america a great country in the first place and what we all once took for granted---the courts rule against torture, and it makes not a bit of difference in what our military does---all bush does is redefine the meaning of the word and go right ahead doing what it was doing----

Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any
[prisoner] ... I do most earnestly enjoin you to bring him to such severe and
exemplary punishment as the enormity of the crime may require. Should it extend
to death itself, it will not be disproportional to its guilt at such a time and
in such a cause... for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to
themselves and their country.

george washington, charge to the northern expeditionary force, sept. 14, 1775----that last line says it all about where we are today.
