Clubbing with Lynn Westmoreland

Remember this complete moron? Congressman Lynn Westmoreland (R – Clueless) on The Colbert Report some months ago, failed to list the Ten Commandments after having co-sponsored legislation hyping their importance. It was completely priceless, and I couldn’t help but wonder how on earth a spectacularly dim bulb such as Westmoreland …

Defeat Douglas

Yep, that’s Vermont’s governor Jim Douglas with Dick “Darth” Cheney at a GOP-Youth Confab at UVM in 2003. Fundraising for the re-election of the President who took us to war and got a steadily growing number of Vermonters killed for no good reason at all. That very same arch-Republican Jim …

Payin' for College

Paying for college, one sip at a time. The stand was a roaring success, but even at this rate there’ll still only barely be enough for a few minutes worth of tuition at a state school ten years from now. Earlier this year, across the river, Dartmouth College set its …

As a die-hard, un-repentant, not-soon-to-be-converted atheist (but …

Buh-bye Wired

I've been a Wired subscriber for almost eight years now. I just go the little "urgent response needed" envelope from their subscription guys, but this time I'm letting it lapse. I'm done with Wired Magazine.   While I appreciate some of their articles and reviews, their content has become increasingly irrelevant …

Oh, You're *That* Guy…

Someone once complained that my “about me” page was so lame. Fair enough. I’ll throw out some vital facts that should clear things right up: I’ve broken my left arm.Twice. And a leg. And my nose. And a finger. Oh, and a rib. Basically I’m a barely walking cripple… Yes, …
