This Week on "Treme"

A not-too-subtle Reminder

Bordertown has reappeared! and with it the hopes and dreams of many. This little link will give you a taste. Yes, Bordertown. The series that started the whole urban fantasy genre that helps keep sane in a world where there is too much focus on material stuff and a lack of magick.

BTW, the first story in the new book just happens to embody the best of the series--a sense of displacement, longing, belonging and resolution. great fun.

He May Have Flunked Logic

A man is arrested and admitted he was in town to kill someone last week but wasn't "in sync with God!!" (my exclamation points) What God and what is his idea of God? Did he miss the new Testament? You know, that stuff about LOVE.

Green Jobs?? No Way

The rub has always been alternative energy will stop traditional oil field and oil-based jobs. Well, yes, it does. But, it produces other new jobs based on alternative energy. Simple.

And I saw my first "bumpy" wind turbine blades being shipped yesterday. I have no idea where they were going but north on I-5, and there have been at least three separate shipments I have seen.

A Holy Crock of Shit!

I knew many priests at my high school who had affairs, got married, etc. None of them were pederasts. They did not chase young boys! This is an endemic problem in a culture that has not owned, faced up to, admitted, etc. Because of that it cannot be solved. It was not Woodstock!!! I mean, how many priests were actually there?

Why Honor Non-Killers?

Rep. Hunter, get a life!

What a Coincidence!

What are the odds of two terrorists in the same town just down the road from military barracks in Pakistan?

Trouble is, we gave them the Bomb and now we got loose cannons who are ostensibly our allies being the allies of Al Queda. I am glad I do not have to figure this one out.

Something You Don't See Everyday

A guy in a cowboy hat doing Zeppelin and others.

Why Politics Sucks Now

Just a little out of touch with most folk!

Coming Soon

Undoing National Debt

From the Washington Post, a good story on how we turned a national surplus into a major debt in 10 years!!!!!! Makes you wish we had Gore's lockbox now, doesn't it? And when you see what portion of the debt is caused by what, why not roll back some of those programs--defense spending, Medicare prescription drug plan, wars off budget (that has been cleaned up already, not the wars, but at least they are on the budget now), Obama's program to build roads and infrastructure, TAX BREAKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!, and oil company subsidies.

If it were me, I would still fund infrastructure spending and alternative energy, even if it costs money and get money back from banks we bailed out to pay for it. If they can afford bonuses, they can pay back. And I would not cut NPR (less than 0.2% of debt), funds for the arts and school lunch programs.
