Canadian PM doesn't think Bush is "a moron"
Stuff like this makes a headline writer's day.

Time for some needless panicmongering: Flu shot left executive paralyzed
I hate getting flu shots, because this is exactly what I fear is gonna happen.

Computers for the Third World
Is anybody asking why is it so important to bring this sort of information technology to the Third World? I'm sounding like a Luddite.

Everything you ever wanted to know about samurai can be found at the Samurai Archives.

What can I babble about? I cannot believe the Rockies traded Larry Walker for stiffs like Matt Williams and Erubiel Durazo, plus assorted swag. The Diamondbacks completely robbed them blind, pending Williams' approving the deal. I'm sure this larceny will be surpassed later on when White Sox GM Kenny Williams serves up his annual baseball brain fart.

Much-Hyped Human Transporter for Sale on Amazon
I still don't get it. Especially for the low, low price of $4,950.

I don't have too much on my mind to post. One thing that has been pointed out to me of late is that the Food Network can be a limitless supply of unintentional humor. A friend of mine, who apparently watches it often, said Emeril was on it cooking a chicken in Guinness stout. (Ok.) So I flip it on Sunday night after getting home just to see, and run smack into "Al Roker's Thanksgiving Dinner," complete with Al Roker in Mayflower Pilgrim garb. You can't make stuff like this up.

The HisTory of Michael Jackson's face
Time to bring this up again.

Tired. Rhode Island was great. I experienced my first nor'easter. (We have those in Chicago, too, idiots, except in comes from EVERY direction.) I was in Rhode Island for a Catholic family conference, helping some friends run the teens program. A few skits, a few talks, some interaction. It was good for the kids, and good for me to get away and actually DO something useful.
