AL QAIDA HACK ATTACK?
Camilo, over at Mercurial, has some food for thought on the disappearing (or at least unattainable) blogs.
NORTH STATE BLOGGERS
Anyone from Windsor? Know this guy?
Cletus says his Redneck werewolf story is so long that it will have to be stretched out over about two weeks. I think he is planning on finishing it about Halloween for dramatic effect. He started telling it to the BBQ Emporium denizens (good word for a scary story) this morning.
Chuck's story of why he couldn't get a deer with his bow and arrow is interesting reading -- if you care to hear excuses. Apparently those Alabama Indian genes have been watered down too much. But, Bless His Heart, you gotta give it to him. That boy just don't give up!
Have heard nothing yet from The Other Indigo on The Other Ocean. You know, the one who is being victimized by Google? The Good Blog Son is trying to help, which is much appreciated. He will reach more people than I do. It's just not fair to The Other Indigo and I can't understand why Google is so messed up. Indigo Ocean's blog is pensive and interesting and deserves to be referenced correctly. (Have you visited her, BTW?) Wonder if Google mixes up the various bloggers who have "pundit" in their names. Naaaaaa. They're too tall.
Marc the Spudlet Guy linked a potentially very helpful site that gives Top 100 Web Sites for "checking things out". You may want to check out the check-out site here.
IMPORTANT PENDING LEGISLATION
There's a bill called the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act which will require insurance companies to cover a minimum 48-hour hospital stay for patients undergoing a mastectomy. It's about eliminating the "drive-through mastectomy" where women are forced to go home hours after surgery against the wishes of their doctor, still groggy from anesthesia and sometimes with drainage tubes still attached.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN?
All the girls had ugly gym uniforms?
It took five minutes for the TV to warm up?
Nearly everyone's Mom was at home when the kids got home from school?
Nobody owned a purebred dog?
When a quarter was a decent allowance?
You'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny?
Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces?
All your male teachers wore neckties
And female teachers had their hair done every day and wore high heels?
If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived!!!!!!!
