Beltway Traffic Jam

If all’s going according to script, we’re in the air from Jamaica’s Montego Bay airport to Baltimore-Washington International and should get home around 10 p.m. I’m back to work tomorrow and hope to resume at least semi-regular blogging then, although I’ll likely have some catching up to do at the office.

    Yea? Well Bush Is Only 39% Happy With You, Too

    I see where only 39% of the nation is satisfied with the job President Bush is doing. That’s better than Congress (37%) or the nation’s direction (27%). Talk about your tough audiences.
    But how happy can Bush be with the nation? What a bunch of whin…

  6. Real men don’t do baby showers

    When did it suddenly become ok for men to go to baby showers, much less get invited and be expected to attend? I?ve noticed this a lot within the past few years or so. The first thing I noticed…

  8. Robert Mugabe Compares Bush to Hitler

    Bob the Bigot, also known as ‘The Whitey Hating Dictator from Zimbabwe’ (does that rhyme?) has finally turned the corner. It only took him 22 months or so, but he finally came around, FINALLY!

  9. A Reasonable Response

    I totally disagree with what I know of Richard Dryfus’s politics. But I like his acting. One of my favorite films is Mr. Holland’s Opus. That’s probably because of the eight years of trumpet, year of trombone, chorus, choir, madrigals, musicals, an…

    Jimmy Durante vs. Jack Welsh: Miers, Quayle, Jihadists

    Jimmy Durante The fabled comedian Jimmy Durante once said, “I don’t care if you’re laughing with me or at me, as long as you’re laughing. Conversely, Jack Welsh said, “Never be a victim.” Who’s right? Let’s review three examples:…

    Atypical Man, Typical Garage

    Karl Rove has a typical garage. Pretty mind blowing huh? Euphoric Reality has a picture, I dunno wether or not it’s real. None of the yahoo or google news items seem to have any photos associated with them. Or maybe I’m just blind.
