Are you a red head?
Were you at a somewhat classy bar on Water Street Friday night?
I should have said hi, but I didn't.
(By the way, Ask Me Later is now officially Casper's online pick-up joint.)
Are you a red head?
This certainly isn't going to help my standing as a non-geek, but I'd like to recommend a book.
Maybe that's too strong. How about a "supreme act of diplomacy?"
Breaking news from Reuters:
There's enough analysis of Bill Clinton's appearance on Fox News Sunday going around to fill a book, so I'll try to keep this brief.
Fergie showed up on TRL on Monday and had to be stuck up and wear a bra, ruining the only reason I would ever willingly click on a Fergie picture. Man, God
really must hate her. She has a body built for sex, but a head that Jeffrey
Dahmer would've been too grossed out to keep in his house. She may as well be a
minotaur. At least then she'd have horns. Horns are cool.
It's not Eugene taking the risk, it's me. Tell you why in a moment.
Read the story and you'll see the main reason the rate of blacks being
denied for mortgage loans is relatively so high in this area is that the rate of
white folks who get turned down is so darn low.
That suggests many whites in our area get approved simply because they're
white, not because they all have excellent credit ratings.
Because as most reasonable people can agree, black folks aren't the only
people with bad credit.
JSOnline has a major story about Diamond Jim today. While it's nothing we didn't already really know, it takes intuition and makes it fact.
This one really irritates me. Dominica is my confirmation name, for the love of God. Now, the Dominicans have to go saying something like,
"These comments, seen by many Muslims as hurtful, risk encouraging extremists on all sides," it said in a statement, "and put in danger all the advances in dialogue made in recent decades."Let's get one thing straight: No one is responsible for any extremist behavior except for those who engage in it. The pope is no more responsible for any death pertaining to this overreaction than any cartoonist was in drawing Mohammad.
Hey Bullock, is this okay to call fascist?
Hugo Chavez recently commented on the US decision not to approve visas for his doctors or security detail in an attempt to speak before the United Nations.
To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent persons
and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends;
To appreciate beauty;
To find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The pope decided not to apologize to the Muslims. Good for him. As a recovering Catholic, I take some pride in that.
Eugene Kane wants to know why the media isn't screaming and yelling, at the top of their lungs, where were the parents of the kids at Green Bay East High School? No one, absolutely no one, he says is wondering about this. Specifically, he writes, "If these boys were residents of the central city of Milwaukee, I know this question would have been asked by now." Obviously, Gene, no one is asking that question because those kids were white.
In all honesty, I'd rather there wasn't a S**T List. After all, that would mean I got great service everywhere I went. But the reality is that the world isn't perfect.
If the French ever thought that not joining the war on terror (food for oil, anyone?) would somehow set them apart from other American allies, and make-happy the hate mongers of radical Islam, they can know for certain now that it didn't:
Most of the time you'll get 100% out of me.
Today we remember Dong Lee, a passenger aboard Flight 77 on September 11th, 2001.
...Dong Lee was a patriot who understood the value of this Nation's
security and the need to keep important information secure and had no qualms
about putting his intellect to the service of a company and his Nation. Capable,
knowledgeable and able to present ideas so that they could be quickly and easily
picked up and understood as concepts and fit into larger schema, all the while
being affable, courteous, outgoing and willing to discuss how these concepts
could be worked for other things.
I love this guy. Although I missed it when it was first posted, Wagner recently linked back to one of his old posts that laid out the ground rules for a Journal Sentinel drinking game. After reading it, I immediately thought the game alone should automatically name him a member-in-spirit of Drinking Right:
Apparently, both of them are telling lies, but I find it quite ironic that only one of them has the support of the left.
Buzz and I are sitting in a bar right now, um, y'know, practicing for the next Drinking Right.
For some time now I've noticed a trend when it comes to Eugene Kane. Quite often, when stories of crime in Milwaukee hit the news, Kane has a tendency to say something to the effect of "hey, it doesn't just happen in Milwaukee."
Sometimes this place makes me sick. As if hearing about the grave robbers who planned on raping a "hot," dead 20-year-old woman wasn't bad enough, I come home to see that:
A big 'ol tip of the hat to Josh Schroeder for pointing out that Vince Bobot's entire platform is based on criticizing David Clarke.
MKE Magazine's story on Drinking Right and Drinking Liberally is now available online.
Jenna at Right of the Shore checks off items from her back to school list, including a "ten-minute complaint from a professor on how budget cuts have prevented him from creating a course website."
1. Although it's legal to turn on a red, it's not mandatory. Honking at me to do so won't win you any friends.
Note: This has nothing to do with recent events.
These are the women who do crazy things – like slash their ex-boyfriend’s tires,
or fall asleep in front of their ex’s apartment door while waiting for them
(even though the ex-boyfriend has moved on and has no idea why she’d be there),
or text message a guy dozens of times before he ever sends one back.
