Spill Baby, Spill

On the average of twice a day I wish for the powers of a Greek God.  This morning my wish is to take all those morons who were chanting "Drill Baby, Drill" at the Republican convention and displace them to the shores of Alabama where the first fingers of the largest oil spill in history are beginning to degrade wetlands, fisheries and beaches, and magically have them continue their chant, while jumping up and down and generally acting like idiots.  I would welcome what the locals would do to them.

Eating Ants

A recent poem, "Eating Ants," was accepted by Alimentum's MenuPoems.  Hear it being read in a noisy eating establishment by someone I don't know but am now indebted to.

Quick Takes

Rush Limbaugh, who claimed he was going to move to another country (we were hoping) if the health care bill passed, still hasn't found one without socialized health care.  Keep looking Rush.

According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, the University of Phoenix, which many of us used to think was a hoax, is now the second largest university in the country, beating out the California university system.  New York's is still the largest.

Almost perpetual motion machine:  Given the two universal laws that cats, when dropped from a height, always land on their feet; and the law that dictates a buttered piece of bread will always hit the ground (or floor) butter side down = if a buttered piece of bread is attached butter side up to the back of a cat, and the cat is dropped from a great height, it will spin indefinitely generating great amounts of electricity.
