No Rants. No Funny.

My good friend Ken Wheaton is running in a half-marathon to help stop leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma from taking more lives. Please help him raise money for this excellent cause! You can donate any amount, and I'm sure he'll be appreciative for even a $5 donation. You can read more (and donate) at his Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training page.

LOST and Confused

I think my feelings about the series finale of "LOST" would be best expressed through interpretive, wait. Not interpretive dance. That would require kicking myself in the nuts several times. The second best expression would be through a new theme song. Like one of those ones from the 60s and 70s, where you had to explain the concept in the song itself. So here it is. You all know the tune.

Now sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
A tale of a fateful trip.
That started from Australia
Aboard this flying ship.
Hugo was a mighty wealthy man,
The doctor brave and fair.
Six passengers took flight that day
On Oceanic Air. On Oceanic Air.

The sky was getting turbulent;
The plane was torn in two.
The pilot died from injuries,
And Kate’s armed escort, too. And Kate’s armed escort, too.

The plane touched down on the beach of an uncharted tropic isle.
With Doctor Jack
And Sawyer too
The crippled guy and his chair.
The pregnant girl,
Polar bears, black smoke too
What will these characters do?

So join us here each week my friends,
You’re sure to feel abused,
If nothing is explained on LOST
The viewer just gets used.

Go Figure

Should I be surprised that a President without any previous executive experience would pick a nominee without any judicial experience for the Supreme Court?
