When it come to this Joe Plumber guy, I don't think we're at odds. There's something not right about his story. Even if he's not some post-skinhead guy, I feel there is something more to this story. That's my hunch. There's an October surprise in there, somewhere. Like...how he's not a licensed plu...

I would much prefer a President who, in the absence of "executive experience" is going to assemble and actually rely on a team of experienced and knowledgable (or "elite" whatever) advisors to assist him as Chief Executive of the country. As opposed to some jackass that just listens to Jesus, his g...

worp, my last post was a joke, as I'm sure Lep's was in reference to Cheney. We might have even been making different jokes about the same guy -- Lep musing on the fact that even though he's only the VP, he's actually the one pulling the strings in the current administration, me riffing on his asser...

Does that even count? Cheney excepted, of course, ha!. Shit. You're right. I forgot that the office of the Vice President is apparently not part of the executive branch, which means all those guys listed up there with VP after their names ain't worth shit. I guess worpswede's right -- not so many p...

previously of a small town where she had to hire a "city manager" that she had to delegate most of her mayoral responsibilities to because she was overwhelmed by her own lack of management experience trying to manage a city of 6000 Did she have to actually initiate that, or is the city government s...

Re: Canadian healthcare

So I read on some dumb forum somebody arguing against Obama by saying they don't want universal healthcare, because look how long it takes to get an MRI in Canada. So I ask my Canadian friends here, how's the healthcare up there in Canadia? Dude, I'm in California, and it takes me over a week just ...

Sendak music bonus, Glono Parents: Really Rosie by Carole King--just a great record. Yep, I'll keep on recommendin'. We had "movie day" once a week at the day care center I went to as a kid, and they showed that movie every once in a while. It was great, and I can still remember most of the songs f...

For what it's worth, I think there's other songs in the oeuvre that are less than the sum of their parts, too. "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" on The Beatles is okay. But I much prefer the stripped down acoustic version, without all the Clapton noodling, on Anthology 3 . Same thing for "I Am the Wal...

Just for the sake of Supreme Court appointees, I'd vote Dem even if their candidate was some sort of small rodent.

I'm actually registered with the Green Party, so in a way I'm having to hold my nose to even vote for a candidate as conservative as anyone the Democrats put up, Obama or whoever.

I installed 8.0 last night and clicked on a couple tracks in my collection to see what recommendations it made, but I didn't go into the playlist making capability.

Of course, after installing 8.0, my iPod now refuses to play music. So I kinda think 8.0 isn't all that great right now.
