Arizona to Baltimore...

I'm currently in Phoenix. Tomorrow night, I head to Baltimore... Driving...

Should be fun.

It may seem cheesey, but when I seek inspiration. When I need guidence. I read Ronald Reagan.

Random flip of the pages...

" It is time for us to realize that we're too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams . . . . Let us begin an era of national renewal. Let us renew our determination, our courage, an our strength. And letus us renew our faith and our hope. . . . The crisis we are facing today . . . . [requires] our best effort and our willingness to believe in ourselves and to believe in our capacity to perform great deeds; to believe that together with God's help we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all why shouldn't we believe that? We are Americans."


Eds. note - the end of that quote would be better if he said ". . . .We're Americans, Motherfucker." (Kid Handsome's note on Otter's post.)

I hate E-vites . . .

Just thought you should know. First it puts tremendous pressure on me to actually answer the invite - which I do not do, as a weird matter of principle. Then on top of that, you have a whole list of who is coming and who isn't. I guess so that everyone can see whether the cool crowd is showing up or, you know, not showing up.

Anyway, not that I really want anyone to send me a card, which I would throw out anyway, but it seems strangely impersonal and annoying to get an e-vite.

I'm willing to bet I'm in the minority on this one, but I'm also willing to bet that "convenience" will be the oft used defense of this practice.

The First Domino Has Fallen . . . Will Cleveland Be Next

In proof that Cleveland does not actually rock. It is next in line to contemplate a trans-fat ban. It has already banned smoking.

I have an idea. I'll get together with Otter and the rest and pass legislation outlawing death and disease in Scaggsville. You simply may not die; it's forbidden.

Grease Nazi

The New York City Board of Health knows better. They know that you can't be trusted with that pizza or hamburger. Those "fatty foods" just have too many trans-fats, and well, they just banned them. That's right. The government is going to make you snack on nuts and twigs whether you like it or not.

Not that I need another reason to avoid New York City. It's a dirty, disgusting, overpopulated, and expensive wasteland. But to put in place regulations that force restaurants to prepare food other than the way they want to do it is just obsurd. What's next? Ban standing still?

I'll take the trans-fat meal deal #69 from McDonalds BECAUSE I CAN. Eat me New York.

Gun Fun

Otter - see if you can get one of these for target practice...

More Unicorn Rights

Those Muslim Imams who were correctly pulled off a plane a couple of weeks back want their own prayer rooms at the Airport.

They might draw less attention, they told airport officials Friday, if they had a separate room in which they could say one of their five daily prayers to Mecca.

"When we pray, we don't want a problem. We don't want what happened last week," said Abdulrehman Hersi, an imam at Darul-Quba mosque in Minneapolis, referring to the group of six Muslim clerics who were removed last week from a US Airways flight in Minneapolis after attracting concern from some passengers.

The group of Somali clerics said they wanted to open better lines of communication with airport officials after both the US Airways incident and a recent flap over Muslim cab drivers who didn't want to pick up passengers carrying alcohol.

"We are users of the airport too, and we don't want to get into a situation where Muslims feel we are being marginalized at the airport," said Omar Jamal, executive director of the Somali Justice Advocacy Center in St. Paul and the organizer of the demonstration and meeting.

Airport Director Steve Wareham said he'd consider setting aside a private area for prayers, or simply for passengers who need a few minutes of quiet time. He said some airports around the country have so-called "meditation rooms" for that purpose.

I think that's clearly a ridiculous idea. Besides, they didn't get kicked off the plane for praying. It was ignoring their assigned seats and getting into a scatter pattern almost identical to the 911 hijackers (positioning themselves at all the exits to the plane), and screaming out Allah every few minutes. Even if that screaming didn't scare you, it's annoying as hell. It would be like what would happen to me if I shouted outI'm handsome every two minutes on a flight.

Don't Treat Me Like A Thief...

Great story I found through Hit & Run about one man's attempt at changing the retail world. I love it.

I was reading the Smallest Minority today and saw this... It's freaking awesome.

Update on the Atlanta Police Shooting

Read this post, and follow any links, if you're interested in what appears to have become a case not just about a botched raid, but also about police corruption.

Also, dig down in the comments and you'll find a link to an article that says that this lady only fired one shot. That means that the three officers who got hit five total times probably suffered their wounds mostly from the indiscriminate shots of their fellow officers.

They should have let Poot take the shot.*
