Jessica Lynch Drama Unfolds Nicely

Saturday, May 31, 2003 7:41 No Comments

I love the Jessica Lynch exaggerations being exposed. It has got to be embarrassing for all of those that fell for the propaganda so readily, and gushed over Lynch right out of the gate. Yours Truly smelled it. And I was called “uncompassionate” and told “how dare you” for saying so. Well, according to the [...]

The world’s newest paleo wasn’t happy with the reading material I gave him; go figure.

We Need Synchronized Swimming “Control”

Friday, May 30, 2003 6:28 No Comments

Now tell me this ain’t funny: the Olympic Committee has asked the Brazilian synchronized swimming team to remove the scenes of violence from its performance for the upcoming Pan American games in Rio de Janeiro. Check out the act of “violence” (from the San Franciso Chronicle):

Oh For Peak’s Sake!

The Bureaucrats-With-Nothing-Better-To-Do are renaming a New Hampshire mountain peak after Ronald Reagan. “Supporters said it is appropriate to substitute Reagan’s name because Clay was never president. Mount Clay is in the Presidential Range, which includes mounts Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Eisenhower and Pierce.” Ah, yes – of course.

Yep, more about books. In yesterday’s blog, I posted my photography of Minnesota river towns. One little gem along the way was the discovery of Loome Antiquarian Booksellers in Stillwater, Minnesota, one of the greatest bookshops I have ever been in. Do not miss Loome’s website. The book sections at Loome include all the basics [...]

Coulterisms; Hannity Blows

Anti-Coulter.org is apparently shutting down. After all, how tired can one get of berating someone who is so fanatically silly so as to be beyond berating anymore? Some funny Coulter-bashing from the website: * “On TV, Coulter conveys all the feminine warmth of a water moccasin, if you can imagine a pit viper with silicone [...]

Photo Album Time/Travel Blog

Thursday, May 29, 2003 9:04 No Comments

I’ve been traveling, hence the lack of any blogging lately. However, I thought I’d try something new. I’m in the process of setting up a “Photography” section on my website (where I will post my own photography), but in the meantime, I thought I’d blog some of my travel photos by topic, just to experiment. [...]

The Great Republic of Texas

Thursday, May 22, 2003 3:52 No Comments

All the years of getting lots of emails kind of gives me an interesting feel for various regions of the U.S., and its peoples’ attitude toward freedom. I just wanted to give Texas the nod as having the most hardcore, pro-liberty residents in existence. (This is only empirical in the sense of the emails I [...]

Homeschoolers Win Again

Wednesday, May 21, 2003 11:17 No Comments

Homeschooled James Williams won the 15th annual National Geographic Bee. I saw this story in the Yahoo news section, and it noted the school name of the 2nd-place winner, but not for James. I got suspicious, betting that the writer had wanted to bury the politically incorrect fact that the winner was homeschooled. It took [...]
