Music Monday: Happy Birthday, Neighbor!

Published on July 1, 2013 By bmagnus

It’s Canada Day!   Insert joke about saying “aboot” here, eh? In Closing: Pot; the economy is bad enough that we have to buff it out with Kardashians; Google Reader is dead.

Crazy Talk

So, it seems clear to me that the War on Drugs isn’t even the War On Some Drugs, but rather the War On Brown People Possessing Drugs. At what point can we confess this and address the problem? At what point do we stop wasting millions of millions of dollars “fighting drugs” and putting people in prison […]

Sorry for the little hiatus. Finals are coming Real Soon Now and my writing has been monopolized by a paper on Henrietta Lacks and HeLa cells. Fascinating stuff. For a minimally sciencey version, check out this biography. Depending what day it is, the world news front is likely to say something about Iran, North Korea, […]

Seriously, what exactly does that add? In closing: grey area; the rich get richer; yeah right; la la la la la la la la; and Masako-sama.

When the Shorties Went Out

Gee, D’ya Think?: Turning underpaid undocumented workers into legal taxpayers making at least minimum wage could boost the economy. I Could Like this Pope: Ok, he’s not perfect (No, I don’t believe in Papal Infallibility either). At least he has no Nazi entanglements, what with having been a little kid on the other side of the globe […]

Music Monday: ?

Happy Birthday to both John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and Alex Kingston (Melody Pond River Song).   In Closing: let’s just get all the TSA bashing out of the way; hope nobody is surprised that Federal law still says pot businesses aren’t legal; Sir Patrick Stewart; no plan is a plan; I already said this; […]

Music Monday: Happy New Year

  In Closing: My new favorite blog; disgraceful; AC saves lives; damned if he doesn’t sound reasonable; no deal may well be better than a bad deal, but it doesn’t matter because there will be no vote tonight; yeah, that does sound kinda dumb when you put it that way; Baby Boomer Nuns; they wouldn’t […]

A Buffet of Bad Ideas

There’s a restaurant site down the street that does not appear to attract success. I forget what the place was originally, other than an expensive build. I feel certain that high expenses are what killed the place. After remaining empty for a while, it became an “Asian fusion seafood restaurant.” Hey, this is Vegas, we […]

Happy Rapture Day!

How’s that working out for you? I feel fine. So I haven’t said anything about the brouhaha surrounding now-former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn.  Let me remedy that right now: But by far, the best actual headline has to be IMF Aborted Internal Investigation of Strauss-Kahn in 2008. Thank you, Businessweek! In closing: the truth; if […]

Or: Ha ha! Women Like Cupcakes! The Christian Science Monitor is not the only news source that went with the headline “Obama targets women voters in Seattle trip with talk of jobs, cupcakes.” The title goes back to this paragraph: The White House gathered a group of female business owners for the Seattle meeting to […]
