The result of the vote

Manatee Status="*"

What?! Brand it?!?! WHY??!! I know this vote was rigged (I mean two of the choices were the same after all), but I just didn't realize by how much. I participated. Just goes to show that the best of ideas can be just as bad as the worst of them. Better luck next time, Ecko! Silly how he reveals the results on the Today Show, not exactly the most fitting of places, with Matt and Meredith.

What is it?

Manatee Status="like, huh?"

When I first saw the picture on the front page, I immediatly wondered "who's the guy?" Then I read the caption and saw it was Mary Winkler the husband killer and was stunned. So, this is what prison does to a woman? Turns a she into a he? Scary!
As for her girls, she should not be allowed to see them ever again, she has done enough damage as it is. The grandparents should get full custody and that should be the end of it.

Maddening prankster!

Manatee Status="angry"

This morning, I wrote a short piece regarding a story which broke overnight, the student who was tasered after asking Sen. Kerry a radical question. Now, after a full day of facts, we find out that it was a publicity stunt and this student (even though he is named in the article, I wish not to utter said name) was acting out for the cameras that were present at his request.
Sickening! That is the word that comes to mind. We were all tricked and I am disgusted by his actions. I still think the officers did not need to taser him, but his stunt is just as revolting to me.
Although his so-called friends claim that what occurred was not a stunt, after viewing the tape yet again, I believe that is was, is, and that I and many others (including Michael Savage) were taken for fools. It irks me to no end! Why? Why, in the name of heaven, must we fall prey to such maggots? Is it just human nature? Such is the mystery of life and living.

Police state

Manatee Status="shocked"

This is outrageous! This video is shocking, not just for what happens to the student, but in the lack of response of the other students. That room should have erupted into a riot against the unlawful attack on the student and those officers should have been beaten down. The tasered student did nothing wrong! It is difficult to watch this video without thinking of what a police-state we are indeed in. What ever happened to freedom of speech? It is missing in action as is courage and integrity among one's fellow students.

Play the flicks

Manatee Status="silly"

Just logged in after a brief hiatus from blogging and found the news item about Blogger's new fun feature, Blogger Play. It is fascinating to see what people will post, and I like being able to control the speed at which the pics fly by. You may see some pictures from me sweep on by there at some point, ya never know. So, visit the FAQ for more details, if that's what you like.

Amateur Radio on 9/11

Manatee Status="steady"

Amateur Radio is an important tool, as was seen and made evident on that sad day nearly six years ago. I am thankful that the Pentagon is commemorating ham radio on that auspicious day. Never forget.

Duration of our love

Manatee Status="When you're smiling..."

Using Time and, I have discovered that on our wedding day next year, Barbara and I will have been engaged for more than a year. Check it out here.

And writing about this wedding is cathartic, though I always imagined that it would be lethargic. LOL :-) But seriously, it is fun to plan such a big event, though ours won't be that big, really quite small, or rather medium-sized in comparison to other events. Should be fun, it will be fun, lots of dancing and cake and food. We are doing a buffet-style dinner, after all. This Monday, in fact, Barb and I will do a cake-testing of six different flavors. My, I will be so sugar-high after that. I am almost thinking that perhaps I should re-schedule the DJ whom we will interview at 3 that day. He may run out scared of us on our sugar rush. Perhaps we won't be that scary. I don't know, though time will tell. It always does. Right?
