NY Governor Patterson Sets An Interesting Precedent

The governor of my state has declared that all state government agencies must recognize ALL marriages from other states, including Canada, and that means the gay ones as well. This is curious as New York does not allow the marriage of same-sex people presently.

This could set an interesting precedent where, if other states follow suit, gay couples must marry outside their state in order to be married in their state.

Political Ouroboros pt 3: Sharpton to H.Clinton: "Watch What You Say"

Sharpton said he spoke to Hillary Clinton Saturday morning about her recent reference to the assassination of Robert Kennedy - "and she understands my feelings firmly."
[...]
"I don't believe either candidate meant it when they said it, but I do believe if you strike a match in a flammable environment, you run the danger of something catching fire," Sharpton said. "I'm asking them to be careful how they handle their matchbook."

Yes, well, thank god The Good Reverend is there to hand out advice that he is the most appropriate person to give. Far be it for me to defend Ms. Clinton (can you tell I'm not impartial?) but I just can't resist linking back to that story I wrote last year of what he said in my presence.

Something You Oughta Know

I turn on my TV and see this...




Apparently the President /General Manager of Lowe's Motor Speedway is named "Humpy Wheeler". If some serious novelist made that up they would burn his books.

Say What?

nail biting

I have bitten my nails all of my life. Call it an oral fixation (and those whose names are on my shit list for taking away my pacifier will tell you that it is), is has been a bane before, during, and after my hard-core tobacco addiction which is thankfully now past.

Today I received THIS in the mail... (at my request -- sorry, do I sound tense?)





... which was supposed to make my fingers taste so bad I wouldn't want to put them in my mouth.

I will give this product the worst possible review I ever gave a porn movie:

"In spite of its best efforts my intentions went unchecked."

Something I may or may not recommend depending on which ad is shown:
