Gray Davis and the circus.

Oh! To live in California, land of promise, mostly promissory notes from the govt. Land where as near as one can tell, everything under the sun (and indeed the sun itself) causes cancer. L.A., New York City of the west, but not quite. Too warm, and the rivers aren't on fire. And now the butt of... Sign in to see full entry.

News and the facts

Views are presented with each side quoting facts that are diametrically opposed. How are we at home or on the job supposed to sort through all the claims and counter-claims? We should suppose that a Republican and a Democrat are not going to agree, but shouldn't the news agency demand they show... Sign in to see full entry.

Media feeding frenzy

Arnold, Rush, Cobe-bears, lions and tigers-oh my! The cable news networks must be hiring extra people to cover all the minute details, that in the long run don't really affect those of us at the bottom of the news chain. How about turning loose some of the languishing military analysts on the legal... Sign in to see full entry.

Rush and the world rushes with you.

Rush, using drugs? Now that’s a rush! Suddenly the icon of all that’s right (pun intended) finds himself in that place where the self righteous hate to find themselves. I’m not a Rush hater. I have never really paid that much attention to him and this is not about Rush, but rather any person that... Sign in to see full entry.

So there's a leak in the White House, bummer, better call the plumber. Loose lips sink ships or sometimes de-rail a presidency, just ask Bill. The CIA ain't what it used to be, all the good spies have retired. Picture it, G. W. (wailin') Bush picks up a twelve string guitar and begins to moan "I've... Sign in to see full entry.

Economic Recovery?

Where do these cheerleaders for the economy get their information? If it is recovering, the proof certainly isn't in my wallet. What's in your wallet? Old grocery lists and cell phone numbers written on napkin shreds I'll bet. Some parts of the country have never seen an economic recovery. Some... Sign in to see full entry.

We don't need no stinking name change.

Washington state movers and shakers want to change the name of the state to that of another president to end the confusion about where we are from, the usual response being, DC? Who are these people that want to change the historically established name of this, the greatest of states that almost no... Sign in to see full entry.

Aren't we as important as Barbara Striesand?

It must be cool to be a celebrity and have so many people hang on your every word just because you are who you are. You wouldn't have to be thoughtful or right (or even left) or anything responsible like that. Just say whatever you want and thousands swoon in agreement, lambs being led, thoughts...

Don't hang up on me when I'm hanging up on you.

Freedom of speech versus freedom from hearing speech and the do not call list. How can an industry exist that, to my knowledge, everyone ignores? Telemarketers are singing the blues, excuse me if I am not sympathetic. The legal wrangling is fast, furious and certainly an indication that 50 million... Sign in to see full entry.
