It's a Whole New Race

For over a year, the mood of the Democratic party has been "Anyone but Bush". After the Presidential Debate tonight, it is clear that John Kerry is a very good choice for president, not just because he isn't George Bush, but because he is intelligent, well-spoken, and prepared to lead.

I have to imagine that while John Kerry will return to his campaign headquarters to cheers and accolades, President Bush will be wandering around the white house cursing and kicking the dog.

Glad I'm Not Catholic

Overhead while walking through a classroom building today:

Young Lady: "... It's all about the kind of person you are. If you a ho, you gonna sleep with the Catholics"

Young Man: "But you did"

Young Lady: "But I'm not a ho"

Not sure what's bad about sleeping with Catholics. Maybe she's 7th Day Adventist.

Mitch Misses the Point

Mitch Daniels is using a very interesting campaign strategy. He comes across as a simpleton that has no idea how politics works, asking us to believe that his down home, common sense approach is appropriate for State government. However, it is tough to believe when we look at his history, both in industry and the Federal government. Even if you think he did a pretty poor job as White House Budget Director, it's hard to believe that he didn't catch on to the political way in D.C. So, when we see the Sheriff Andy Taylor routine in his commercials he is either putting on an act, or is really that stupid. Either way, I don't want him in charge.

His latest TV commercial is a response to allegations that he acted inappropriately when approving the sale of IPALCO when on the board. He's sorry that those who could not sell stock because it was locked up in a 401K couldn't realize the profits that he and other executives received. At the end, he says that even someone like him who has never run for office before can see that it shouldn't be about questioning a candidate's character.

Wrong, Mitch. It's ALL ABOUT CHARACTER!!!! How can we trust you to act in the best interests of the residents of the State of Indiana after you showed so little concern for the employees of IPALCO?

If You Can't Read This, I Have Pie

I'm bothered by little things that shouldn't be noticed, such as...

People who use "if" along with an unrelated fact.

"If you want to buy a drink, they're $3.95" (Actually, the drink is the same price whether or not I wish to buy one.)

"If anyone needs me, I'll be out of town" (Which means if no one needs her, she'll have to stay home.)

Try this instead:

"Those who would like a drink can buy one for $3.95"
"I'll be out of town this weekend"
"If you want spontaneous monkeysex, see me after class"

Just trying to help.

Here's Your Sign

It happened again!

This time, in addition to the hill, curve, double yellow line, and oncoming traffic, there was a jogger involved. Everyone had to come to a quick stop to avoid collision.

Check Your Order Here

An open letter to fast food restaraunts (especially the McDonald's at Stadium and Northwester and the Wendy's on the Parkway):

If you are going to have the screen at the order station turned on - You know, the one that prompts us to check our order for accuracy - please have it working.

We got along pretty well without those things for years. Maybe you should just take them out.

Comment Changes

I jettisoned the Haloscan comments stuff. I don't get very many comments anyway, and I didn't like the way it worked. Plus, the last comment I received didn't seem to be attached to any posting. Anyway, let's try the Blogger comments for a while.

Oops! You have no imagination!

I can't believe how many news stories I've seen on the web, television, and radio that cover the "surprise" marriage of Britney Spears. And every one has begun with "Oops! She did it again"

First of all - who cares! What's the difference to the rest of us if she is married or not?

Second, what right do they have to write off this marriage as an impromptu decision that will be reversed within 48 hours?

Lastly, WHO CARES!!!!

At least come up with an original lead line.

Now I Feel Bad

I've left comments on a few blogs, including my URL, and now I'm wishing I hadn't used the foul language in my bicycle rant.

To the thousands of expected new readers: Please don't think I always speak that way (at least when I'm not alone). I can actually carry on an intelligent conversation with good grammar and shit.

Can You Tell I'm a Little Upset?

Here's the sign I'm going to put up on the hill that is on my route to work:

Hey, dumb ass!
Don't pass bicycles on a hill -
with a curve - and a double yellow line!
How did a stupid FUCK like you get a
license, anyway?

I'm not sure if it will fit on one of those little yellow diamond signs.
