Water, Wind, Sight and Fright

A real life story of courage and sportsmanship. It takes a real man to turn back and help a rival during a race. Mike Golding deserves praise for helping Alex Thomson after his boat capsized. It's not that he wasn't interested in winning (he was in second place), he just wasn't interested in winning with a death on his conscience.

Mother nature is fascinating. The Great Colonial Hurricane was the largest storm to hit the Northeast in the last 400 years, appearing fourteen years after the Pilgrims landed. The English had never seen a hurricane and the Indians had never seen a storm of such magnitude. Coincidence? Probably not, but it sure makes for as good a conspiracy theory as any.

More money than sense. The car cost more than my first house and the paint job is blindingly stupid.

How many pedophiles are there? What are the odds that any man you meet is a pervert? They actually aren't that good but you wouldn't know it from the hysterical overreaction people seem to be suffering from. This guy is right, almost every human relationship is now governed by law instead of trust. Society needs to step back, take a deep breath and think about what they are doing. Otherwise it might soon become illegal for anybody but mom to wipe a baby's bottom.

Heartwarming. How do you teach yourself echo location? Goes to show that it pays not to wallow in your misfortune.

OMG! Iraq is totally out of control. Immolating people in the streets is not what I consider to be an improvement over Saddam. Not at all. Every day the news gets worse, more sadistic, more tragic and more prolific. When they start revenge killing of toddlers will something finally be done? Or will the world wait until there is no one left?

  1. Deb,
    I expect they probably already have done some revenge killings of toddlers and all the asswipes at the WH can do is argue over a whether to call it a Civil War.

    I'm disgusted.
