How not to do it

Many people have raised their voices thoughtfully, eloquently, and forcefully against the pending invasion of Iraq. They have made many cogent arguments why this is a bad idea, and they have made may people at least think about why they do or don’t support this action.

Unfortunately, not everyone who protests does so intelligently. Naturally, the dumb ones get the press.

Sigh.

Get off my lawn!

Today, October 15, is National Grouch Day. I’d wish you a Happy National Grouch Day, but somehow that just doesn’t seem right.

Sadly, there is no unusual observance on February 19, which is my birthday. I am somewhat heartened to learn that the week of February 14-21 of this year was National Condom Week. I will refrain from any further comments.

Note to Fritz Schranck: February 23 is “Curling is Cool Day”. Just thought you should know that.

It’s all California all the time

Congrats to the Giants for winning the pennant and sending Barry Bonds to his first World Series.

Both pennant winners are wild card teams, which was enough to make King Kaufman rethink his dislike of the wild card. See, King? The wild card isn’t so bad.

I see also that teevee ratings are up for the LCS over last year. Maybe Fox won’t have to worry about the lack of a New York team in the World Series after all.
