Out-of-state travel is the cause of the latest interruption of blogging — plus it made me go cold turkey for several days from my hockey addiction. Rather than regaling readers with travel tales, here’s several items items I’ve noticed over the last week or so.
- Denise Ross has launched a website, including a blog, for her forthcoming documentary Unplanned Democracy: America’s First Vote on Abortion.
- South Dakota Moderate notes that the Clear Channel conglomerate reportedly sent out a memo saying not to play music from Springsteen’s Magic. Of course, the political content of the music has nothing to do with it. It’s that “Springsteen simply is too old to be played on rock stations.” Yeah, right, that’s the ticket.
- South Dakota Moderate also points out that college is dangerous. Maybe that’s because thinking is dangerous, if not at times outright revolutionary.
- The Intelligent Design Venn diagram.
- Scott Hudson accurately senses there’s a lot of Gomer, Goober, and Barney around here.
- It’s true. Sometimes a fire is just a fire.
- So why is it that most of the national press Dennis Kucinich gets is not because of his position on the issues but because of his wife or he honestly answers a question about having seen a flying object he couldn’t identify. Even area conservatives recognize we truly have moved from issues to inanity.
- Although I suspect its time has passed, the second X-Files movie is set for a July 2008 release. (Via.)
I often think back fondly on memories I haven’t repressed.
