What I Am Learning

As I read the responses to the tragic assassination attempt in Arizona, one of the biggest things that I am learning is how very fragile the so-called pundits of the right-wing are.  I mean fragile in the sense that any … Continue reading

Wednesday. That's All – Just Wednesday.

Do you live in one of America’s ten most miserable cities?   Hope not.  That would be miserable.  And speaking of miserable – I’d forgotten that Laura Ingraham existed,’til I read this on Huffington.  Glad Arlen gave her a scolding.  … Continue reading

Will It Blend?

Phillies Clinch and McCain Continues to Tank

Is That an Acorn that McCain Has in His Cheek?

I, for one, can’t wait for tonight’s debate and Obama’s response when McCain goes after him.   How Big Mac will work his fringe issues into the format should be interesting to see.  The GOP has been thrusting Ayers and … Continue reading

Phillies' Bats Come up Big … etc.

It wasn’t looking good for Chase Utley and crew when yours truly hit the hay last night.  But 40 year old Matt Stairs’ 2-run homer put the Phillies in the win column for the 3rd time in the NLCS – … Continue reading

Check out Susan’s comment on Alison’s post yesterday (and Welcome, Alison – I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say here)!  Speaking of the Electoral College, I heard an interesting piece on NPR about the Electoral College – … Continue reading
