Happy Groundhog Day! I really have to find my copy of that movie, since it doesn't appear to be airing in prime time. Six more weeks of winter? Here in SC, that means six weeks *of* winter--I haven't seen any yet.
Apparently people reporting stolen drugs happens all the time (according to the 911 dispatcher in the family). Most of them think better of it and disappear before the cops show up to take a statement.
If God really punished people so directly for their errors, this fruitcake would be at the top of the list.
This headline is ignorant. I'm hard to offend by usual means, and will interject with something mischievous right when people expect me to run away blushing and squeaking, but I have my own hot buttons and issues that offend me.

"Can a 160-year-old man hit on a 91-year-old woman in an oxygen bar without being considered a predatory scumbag?" The answer should obviously be "yes;" a 75-year-old man hitting on a 35-year-old woman is seen as creepy and a dirty old man now, but not as a predator.
Good writeup on the SWG NGE
Remember that moment of respect I had for the prez? I'm over it.
