Be It Resolved

One of my many New Year's resolutions--and one I won't mind a bit--is to spend more time in New Orleans. Proximity sometimes has a dampening effect...that, and the fact that I don't like driving (I was mentioning to someone the other day that while I've got a decent car, I still have a lousy-car mindset, and it affects my driving habits. And THEN you've got to deal with traffic, drivers behaving like idiots, etc. Sadder still is that pretty much ANYONE you talk to says they'd take the train...if there was a train.) to visit with a friend who relocated to the city last summer. Here's hoping this is the beginning of a trend. In the meantime...Friday cat blogging without Photoshop...and time for me to hit the road.

Might be back much later today or tomorrow. Until then, thanks for stopping by, and cheers.

And I'll bet he's not the only GOPer who'd have an interesting IRS audit.
I'm Sure It Was Just a "Fraternity Prank" *

A historic election and inauguration hasn't ended ignorance and hatred:

State and federal authorities are investigating an incident in which a twine noose was found Wednesday morning on a black employee’s chair at the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness...

A female supervisor and her male coworker, both black, found the miniature noose, [Agency Director Mark] Cooper said.

Both were "rattled" by the discovery, he said.

Guantanamo is the new American Dream.

You know, President Obama sure sounds good. And it sound even better to say that among President Obama's first executive orders are actions designed to close down Guantanamo, a national shame.

Endless Cycle

The initial casualty estimates from Israel's Gaza invasion are just over 1,200 people killed and some 4,300 wounded, mainly civilians.

And we think the Aztecs were cruel because they practiced ritual human sacrifice...

Wingnuts pronounce Iraq a "smashing success."

I'd hate to see what it'd be like if it wasn't.
Or Not To Have A Mind At All


U.S. Sen. David Vitter questioned how Obama’s speech will stand the test of time.

"You always wonder what words will stand out 20 years from now," Vitter said. "None stick in my mind."

Which probably tells you more about David Vitter than Obama's speech...

Former President Bush, Former President Cheney...has a nice ring to it.

Personally, I was swamped here at work--probably good, because we received official word that internet streaming video was contributing to network slowness...I'll catch the highlights this evening, though I was lucky enough to be on my lunch break for the final departure of Shrub...hey, hey, hey, goodbye indeed.

Except for the cleanup, which will wear out more than a few hazmat suits.

And he's still an idiot, too.

Hope everyone had a good Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Last night I watched the History Channel special on Dr. King--twice--and today took the day off to do a few projects around the house...and bring Tigger to the vet for his annual checkup.

Sorry for not otherwise posting, but it's nice to have almost gotten caught up with everything. In the meantime, here's Monday cat blogging without Photoshop...the 'because he was reasonably well-behaved at the vet, and checked out fine, health-wise, he gets to jump into the cabinet' version, which he's been pining to do for some time.

Normally the space he's occupying holds the gumbo pot, but right now the gumbo pot is in the fridge, full of...gumbo. Mmmm. Anyway, catch you tomorrow.
