-Finished “Mostly Harmless” by Douglas Adams, completing my run through the five book Hitchhiker’s trilogy. I enjoyed this book more than the previous two books, and almost as much the first two books.
-Twitter is monumentally stupid.
–Chief Meyers for the Hall of Fame. I’m hoping to write up an article on the Dead Ball era catcher, but it will have to wait…
-Mainly because I have an 18 page paper due next week. Expect light posting.
-Political Thought: What’s the point of having two parties if they have the same policies? It’s like changing managers (baseball or business) who do things the same way. There should be a philosophic alternative (a difference between the parties). Moving the GOP to the center would do no good if the policies of left of center politics fails. So please Democrat friends, you can stop telling me the Republican Party needs to move to the center (That means you Gov. Schwarzenegger and Sen. Snowe).
-In 1932, 1964, 1976 and 1992 the Republican Party was declared dead. In 2002/2004 the Democrat Party was declared dead. I highly doubt 2008 signaled the end of the Republican Party.
-Just FYI Flu Fans, face masks don’t prevent the healthy from getting sick, but they go a long way in keeping the sick from spreading the disease to the healthy. If you’re feeling sick, quarantine yourself and wear a mask to prevent the spread of your flu. (I’m a CPR/Safety/Professional Responder/First-Aid instructor for the Red Cross, so I’m not completely unqualified to say this.)
