Political Propaganda

I came across something interesting today. I got my mail and found out that on one of my mailing lists, someone strongly objected to the list moderator encouraging people to go see An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s movie about global warming. He dismissed the movie as “political propaganda.” It struck me that this sounded like… Continue reading Political Propaganda

Mara, The House and Las Vegas

I’m putting my things together, getting ready to leave for another week at the wheel. I’m headed over to Franklin, Tennessee, and am a little annoyed that I didn’t get a full weekend (again).

Lovelace Ruminations

I’m so bored. I had the cable turned off so that I could have a better chance at scraping together the house payment every month.

Idiots on The Highway

Okay, just when I thought people couldn’t get any dumber, someone proves they can. I just got passed by a guy who was driving and typing on his laptop computer at the same time. I guess that’s no more idiotic than people I’ve seen with a book lain open on their steering wheel. But geez.

Without Firing A Shot

She gave me great pain And said make something wondrous That you may know life and Thrive in my benevolence. And I wish I could die But I am too well-made.

Republican Denomination

Had a funny today. I was in the receiving office at a customer. I made some off-hand remark about needing a good massage from a half-naked Vietnamese babe (this was in a room full of truck drivers). One guy said “I couldn’t do that. I’m a Christian.” So I said, “Oh, really? What denomination?” He… Continue reading Republican Denomination
