It's amazing to me that anyone with children can choose to live in Florida, what with all the news coming out of that 'Bush' state. Little girls kidnapped, abused, murdered, children in the care of the state lost, murdered, it just goes on and on.… more »

Cell Hell

Personally, I don't have a cell phone. People look at me oddly when I tell them that. 8 year olds have cells, why would a person like myself not have one? Well, to tell you the truth I don't like being found. My work is the kind of place that if you… more »

bye bye EU

I find it interesting that the French and Dutch both dropped back and punted the EU charter, don't you? I mean they were founding members and all. So is this a case of last-minute cold feet? Or is it a 'well it sounded good on paper... but in… more »
