Aaron Rodgers wins an award.  The Packers still aren't in the Super Bowl.  Lousy refs.



Just Great

2012-01-28T12:45:05.289-06:00

First the prostate & prostate exam!  Now, what?



Gableman Must Be Removed

2012-01-22T09:49:59.999-06:00

This man, I use the term loosely, is continuing to embarrass this (once?) great state.  He has to go.



Sean Duffy Dead?

2012-01-20T17:19:28.675-06:00

I just never, never, never get tired of reporting news like this.

According to a press release, Bath detectives obtained a statement from Watrous on the subject of the death of 35-year-old Sean Duffy, who was found dead of an apparent drug overdose on Saturday in a room at the Bath Hampton Inn. Watrous is believed to be one of the last people who saw Duffy alive.



Etta James, R.I.P.

2012-01-20T17:56:57.568-06:00

She's dead.

I saw her down at Jazz Fest several years ago.  Her set was shortened due to a pretty terrific thunderstorm.  It was wonderful, nonetheless.  I also got a series of pictures of Ms. James at the same venue.  It was a high point of my life.  She had that something, all right.  & we were very lucky to see her in New Orleans.

More here.

Scott Walker's Trusted Aides Charged With Felonies

2012-01-05T17:37:47.137-06:00

Including child enticement.  Let's watch that slimy bastard Walker weasel out of this one.



Bah Humbug

2012-01-02T21:10:32.178-06:00

Lousy refs, really lousy refs.



15 - 1

2012-01-02T09:46:03.003-06:00

The refs were all right. So was Mr. Flynn.  QB controversy?  Doubt it.



The DEA & Medicine

2012-01-01T10:46:11.308-06:00

Here's what happens when the DEA makes health care decisions.  It's also why this country is slowly going to shit. 



Maybe This Is Why My Doc Isn't On My Overweight Case

2011-12-30T13:01:41.570-06:00

I don't like sentences like these:
This translates into a sobering reality: once we become fat, most of us, despite our best efforts, will probably stay fat.




The Left Wins Again

2011-12-30T12:51:39.321-06:00

Good comeback win for the people in Jamaica.



Not A Huge Revelation

2011-12-30T12:46:24.905-06:00

Hopefully, it will be a huge blow to fast food franchises.  I know, I know, I must add the health warning about not holding your breath loyal 5 (yes, five!) readers. Remember, if you don't breath, you die.
Elderly people with high blood levels of vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids had less brain shrinkage and better mental performance, a Neurology study found.
Trans fats found in fast foods were linked to lower scores in tests and more shrinkage typical of Alzheimer's.
That's a live link in the quote.



Science Matters

2011-12-30T12:37:24.887-06:00

Here's another reason why.
Researchers found that wild chimps that spotted a poisonous snake were more likely to make their "alert call" in the presence of a chimp that had not seen the threat. 

This indicates that the animals "understand the mindset" of others.



As You Know

2011-12-27T09:16:03.804-06:00

I just can't get enough of headlines like this:

Sean Duffy is not alone, Jail all ignorant pigs that abuse memorial pages




Day After Xmas

2011-12-26T08:55:11.381-06:00

No boat, loyal five (yes, 5) readers.  However, I can now make my own bubble water, sweet. My failed wild plum jelly will now become a refreshing carbonated soda.  Also, no four-wheeler.  1out of 3, in baseball I could get signed to a multiyear, multimillion dollar contract if I had that average. 



Joke Time

2011-12-21T21:59:08.183-06:00

BTW, the refs sure stunk up Kansas City last Sunday, eh?  I could smell it way up north & through the radio.Now the joke, as it were.All  drugs have two names, a trade name and generic  name.        Example, the trade name is Tylenol and its generic name is Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is  also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called  Ibuprofen.   The FDA has  been looking for a generic name for  Viagra.  After careful consideration by a team of government experts,  it recently announced that it has settled on the  generic name of Mycoxafloppin.  Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin,  Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin. Pfizer Corp announced today that Viagra will soon be available in  liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola  as a power beverage suitable for use as a  mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself  a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of 'cocktails',  'highballs' and just a good old-fashioned 'stiff  drink'.  Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.  Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on  breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research.  This means that by 2020, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections  and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.  [...]



You Tell Me

2011-12-18T07:38:24.682-06:00

He’s dead. 

Crossing into Kuwait, the other way. 

Landslides kill. 

Oil rig sinks. 

Refugee boat capsizes. 
 
Just wait until one of the guys doesn’t get a boat after 40 years of marriage. Then let’s check the health. 

The ReThugs solution to our obesity problem. Who knew they actually had a plan?



Shit

2011-12-17T20:25:54.220-06:00

The news seems to always be lousy.

Cesaria Evora, R.I.P.

2011-12-17T20:31:59.132-06:00

She's dead.

Worse Justice Ever?

2011-12-16T08:54:48.621-06:00

Maybe, but Scott Walker hasn't had a chance to select one to fill a term.



Oh Yeah, Baby - Sports Beat - Pro Division

2011-12-05T11:35:20.965-06:00

12 - 0.  It was tough, it highlighted weakness, it resulted in the first time a Packer team has begun a season with twelve wins & zero losses.  It's kind of nice being a Packer fan from northern Wisco, wallowing in cheese, fried fish, & bratwurst.

& I'm very happy we beat the New York Football Giants, a team I've pretty much hated since the days of Mark Gastineau.

& the refs were fairly straight.



Real Numbers For A Country In Dire Need Of At Least One Dose Of Reality

2011-12-05T11:19:14.917-06:00

It would be great big fresh catch of Lake Superior whitefish if the recent numbers on the unemployment crisis in America were even partly right.
While some celebrated an unemployment rate of "only" 8.6 percent, half that change was explained by the fact that 315,000 people dropped out of the labor force. Job creation barely kept pace with the entry of new people into the workforce.
Those 315,000 people join the 5.7 million people officially classified as long-term unemployed. That number is at historically high levels, representing nearly half (43 percent) of all the jobless people in this country.
It's not that they don't want jobs. Most of them have fallen into despair. Even worse, what they may have fallen into is realism. Unless we use the power of government to do something, some of them will never work again. They're falling out of the "normal" economy and into a new reality of persistent joblessness and, for some, eventual poverty.
& then there are the following:
Invisible: Segregation on the unemployment line. 
Invisible: The jobless generation.
Invisible: The under-employed.
Invisible: The vanishing public servant.
Invisible: The drowning middle class.




Sports Beat - Badger's Division

2011-12-03T23:15:06.160-06:00

The refs were exceptional tonight. So were the acting coaches.  & that old saw - What goes around, comes around - appears to be true.  Who knew?  It was a great game.  The Badgers were just a great team tonight.   Let's hope it continues in the Rose Bowl, eh?



Cain Just Can't Handle The Heat, So To Speak

2011-12-03T16:23:18.020-06:00

I think Herman Cain should have realized that pizza dates that don't develop into more sophisticated table fare have a difficult time maturing.  Cain should have consulted that moron Clarence Thomas who is still a United States Supreme Court Justice. hard to believe, I know. 



Coco Robicheaux, R.I.P.

2011-11-25T23:02:18.383-06:00

He's dead, damnit; he's in the Spiritland.Here's a short post by Mark Folse, a New Orleans writer/blogger.  It sums Coco up really well.  New Orleans musical and spiritual icon Coco Robicheaux is walking with the ancestors. One candle goes out and a thousand new are lighted in mourning and memory. Go with sage and sweet grass, go with a song and a bottle, go with a guitar in hand and bring New Orleans to the spirit land.“I had to use my voice and hands/To make the music of the spirit land.”– Coco RobicheauxI saw Mr. Robicheaux at Jazz Fest several years ago & completely enjoyed his music.  I was able to personally thank him, things are wonderfully casual & sincere in New Orleans.  & his hair was longer than Crystal Gayle's. & he was really cool in an appearance in Treme, a post-Katrina series on HBO (y'all should really watch this show), rooster blood everywhere.  Another thing that's bad is that he was only two years older than I am, makes me worry.  allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/J6ogWbPTFxQ" width="420">[...]
