No, Really

Here's another one from the "You gotta be shittin' me" file. (News Story)

Short version: Idjit HighSchooler wears incredibly racist shirt to school, and (oddly enough) gets into a fight. Proves superior level of idiocy by claiming "I'm not racist or anything, it's just, some people I hate, some people I don't get along with. And black people just happen to be the ones because they think they're better than everyone else." And he's joining the Marines?! (Not if they find out who he is.)

I still have a hard time believing that some people are backward enough to harbor such bigoted feelings, and even more so, expressing them openly. Someday...

Anyway, found a couple of cool Church Marquees this week (thanks, Leilani!)

"God sent a repair crew for this world and we're it."
"Is God's Army on Active Duty?"

As to the second, I can only say that I don't know if it is, but I know that there are too many that think that our current Active Duty Army is God's.

"Onward Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, Baha'i, Zoroastrian, Pagan, Wiccan, etc soldiers..."

This is a Test

So, my wife and I are watching Poker Royale: Comedians vs. Poker Pros. Paul Rodriquez's 5-10 offsuit beats Mark Curry's pocket 6's. After the 30 seconds or so it takes Mark to realize this, he repeatedly utters "bleeps." After a bit, my wife says, "Oh, he's cussing! I thought there was an emergency broadcast announcement coming." One of the funniest moments I've seen in a week.

It's confirmed! Saundra has "one in the oven!" Yup, I'm gonna be a daddy AGAIN! I'm so happy! I am both hopeful and scared that the young'un will be a girl. Hopeful, because what dad doesn't want a little girl. Scared because...well, have you seen my son?! He's unbelievably pretty, and he's a boy! I'm so worried about how angelically gorgeous our girl would be. She'd have guys drooling over her while she's still in the womb!

Well, that's the good news and some of my own psychoses to go with it. Have fun, and don't forget the chocolate!

Gimme 3 things...

3 Things That Make Me Cheerful:

1. My son's undauntable adoration of me. Everytime I go to pick him up after work, he runs to me like he's been stranded for days. It never fails to make my day bright.

2. My wife's unfathomable love for me. If I live to be a thousand years old, I'll never understand what enormous service I must have done in a previous life to earn the love of such a lovely, wonderful woman.

3. When I'm singing a song and hit it just right. Whether it's karaoke or just around the house/in the car, being on just feels so good.

What about you? What are things that make you cheerful? What brightens your day?

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!

Yesterday afternoon, I answered phones for the MDA ("Jerry's Kids") Telethon. That was a great time. I did get airtime, but only locally. I now know how this all works. Jerry and his guests do their thing wherever it is they do their thing. But, network affiliates all over the country man their own phone lines and run their own "break aways" somewhere around once an hour. I was in two of them. Even held my little "Call me now" sign upside down. I do have to say that Alveta Ewell (co-anchor from WAVY-TV 10) was really great. She seemed like a real sweetheart.

I guess that's it. Say "Hi" to the family for me.

Now in Full Circle

Well. I now have a Yahoo!360° page (thanks Drac!). In fact, I've also set this to feed that page automatically. You can read my blog from that page. Pretty cool.

I've been actively avoiding the news of Katrina. On one hand, this tragedy, like most, has brought out the best in most of us. On the other hand, it has also brought out the worst in some. The few hundred people (wealthy) holed up in the Ritz Carlton got twice the buses needed to evacuate while the several thousand at the Civic Center and Superdome (among the dead and dying) continued to wait. The National Guard, in evacuating some of the folks at the Superdome, is confiscating any cigarettes they find, as well as anything they think looks "too new." Now I don't condone looting (whatever the situation), but that just seems petty to me.

The upside includes some great stuff, too, though. is hosting several tournaments to raise money for those affected. Mercedes Lackey and her husband Larry Dixon are donating space for people to flop. That's pretty sweet. Nothing like opening your home to complete strangers.

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.
