Last Thought of the Night

Today, the Senate rejected a proposed bill that would have allowed people to carry concealed weapons from state to state. "The measure would have required" states to recognize concealed carry permits issued in other states. I wonder if the same people would vote to allow gay marriages to be recognized in other states if recognized in any other state. Yes, I know. I can stop wondering and go to sleep.

Thought for the Night

Will any proposed national health insurance program cover treatment for mental illness including those who believe President Obama is not an American citizen?

It is Alive!

In the words of Tiger Woods - "Hello world." Yes, I am alive. Nearly two years of blog silence. That's trappist monk territory to be sure. Writing a daily blog was fun and I thought I put out some great posts but to keep it up and feeling like a guppy in the ocean took away the drive. I thought I would sit back and watch for a while. When I last left you I was in a pitched battle with chipmunks. They retreated for a time but now they are back (perhaps their descendants coming for revenge) and worse than ever. I've added another tax deduction to the family and I've started a new job. Oh yeah, and I didn't have to move to Sydney, Australia (weak dollar and high home prices) because that loopy quitter Sarah Palin wasn't elected vice-president. I'm rested and ready perhaps not for daily crankiness but periodic crankiness nevertheless. See you soon in Crankyland.
