It's not a bug, it's a feature . . . .
Apparently, Bette Midler has bought into the global warming hype. That's not particularly unusual for the entertainment elite. What is unusual is that Ms. Midler appears to have abandoned the hypocrisy that plagues her peers: she is willing to curtail her activities in order to do something she perceives as beneficial.
She's announced she will no longer be touring because she believes that the 14 trucks and other vehicle necessary for her tour are harmful to the environment.
This, of course, sets aside the obvious question: Why in the heck does Bette Midler need 14 trucks while on tour?

What a crappy year
A few minutes ago, my father called to tell me that my Grandma died last night around midnight. She was 82.
Grandma had been pretty miserable since Grandpa died last January. She was frail; but had seemed to improve somewhat.
I can't really say anything more right now. The grief is too much.
Requiescat in pace, Willa Jo. Rest in peace.

My hands HURT . . .
from clapping so loudly at the Sarah Palin speech. . . .
"Parents of children with disabilities . . . if this ticket is elected, I promise you that you will have a friend and an advocate in the White House."
Very nice. And about time.
Those with disabilities don't want special privileges, but whey don't want unnecessary obstacles, either.
I also love her unapologetic embrace of smalltown America. It's about damned time someone said that you don't have to be in a big city to know how to lead.

They just showed Piper holding her younger brother, Trig, and stroking his hair . . .
No, wait -- she just licked her hand and rubbed his hair. She's trying to straighten his hair. I love it!

Nice job using the Obamessiah's words against him. Love the different messages in Scranton and San Francisco part.
Got to get back to work right now (have to file a new case tomorrow), but I love what I am hearing.
