Watch Al Gore’s speech about the judiciary here. Watch how often he looks down at his notes (you can count them on one hand). And he uses big words and I suspect he even knows what they mean. Wouldn’t that be nice to see in a leader.

Being preznitial is hard work.


Hi Mark,
My Dad loves the old radio shows from the 30's to 50's, and he found this.


Very cool.


Greg's incessant C-list name dropping is a little wearying, but he can be pretty funny if you get past that.

I'd rather see Danielle Crittenden, good friend of Meghan G. (aka America's Worst Mother) gone. Ewww

The huffblog definitely needs more ze frank.


I brought my three kids with a friend and her kids to the Biomes Center during the last school vacation. It was a 1 1/2 hour drive to get there, but it was worth every minute. The kids had a blast, petting the sharks, checking out the tidal pool animals, touching the boa constrictor, and seeing the puffer fish blow itself up. We stayed an hour and a half, but the kids could have stayed all day. They were so excited. And it was fun for the adults, too (even if this adult was a little afraid of touching the sharks!) It really surpassed all expectations. I give it 5 starfish out of 5.


yeah... did u get that "koran" pic off of drudge?

Mark H

No I made it with the church sign generator.

it amazes me that the biggest problem he could find with the koran is jesus not being born under a palm tre....


The funniest thing about the flush-the-Koran sign story might just be this quotation:
Seema Riley, a Muslim, who was born in Pakistan and reared in New York, was one of those upset by the sign.

She moved to Rutherford County for the "small town friendly" atmosphere, she said. When she saw the sign on the side of the highway Saturday she felt angered and threatened.

"We need a certain degree of tolerance," said Riley. "That sign doesn't really reflect what I think this county is about."
Evidently Ms. Riley never learned that "small-town bigotry" goes with "small-town friendly", not only in the US but elsewhere. Or that the First Amendment doesn't mean you won't be offended -- if anything, it guarantees your right to be offended. (I like the way she does from demanding "a certain degree of tolerance" to an INtolerant policing of "what I think this country is about."

Sure, the sign is offensive. So are many of the anti-Bush signs I see around my own town. In all cases, the intent to offend is protected by the First Amendment. Jesus went around offending right-thinking people in his own time and place, too, but most people nowadays think that was fine, because they aren't offended by it (or pay too little attention to what he said and did to realize that he'd have been happy to offend them too).


I love sign generator toys too, my favorite is http://www.customsigngenerator.com ;)
