Schulz Smear

I came across this so-called news report via Yahoo: Peanuts creator Schulz led secret life of misery. It reports on a so-called biography (aka. a smear job) by David Michaelis. Disgusting. A quick Google of Mr. Michaelis along with a perusal of the reviews of his books on Amazon makes it clear to me that he is a charlatan who makes his living projecting his own insecurities into his psuedo-psychological scribblings and obsessions then claiming that that he has written so kind of deep analysis of his biographical subjects. His biography of N.C Wyeth is apparently similar. Avoid these books and anything else Mr. Michealis has written; they are all junk.

No Bell PC Prize

Al Gore shares Nobel Peace Prize
What a crock. With this award the Nobel Foundation has jumped shark down the slippery slope into the cesspool of political correctness. The link between the false science, fear-mongering and hypocrisy of the Global Warming moonbats, Al Gore in particular, and the advancement of the cause of peace among mankind totally escapes me.

Football and Phones

Sorry that it's been over a week since my last post. Much has been going at home and work, and there's been little to catch my eye to blog about. Here are a few tidbits for today

Pro Football is tough sport: I use Yahoo as my preferred online news compilation source, including sports. Going to their sports news page, then to the NFL page I noticed the listed headlines were all about players expected to miss one or more games, mostly for injury reasons:
Tough game.

Yet Another Reason Not to Vote for Rudy Giuliani: Found this Wall Street Journal report via the World Magazine blog;
The fact is that people inside the Giuliani campaign are appalled at the number of times their candidate has felt compelled to interrupt public appearances to take calls from his wife. The estimate from those in a position to know is that he has taken such calls more than 40 times in the middle of speeches, conferences and presentations to large donors.
So his stunt at the NRA convention was not a one-time deal. The article makes it sound like it's ignorance of good manners, but frankly it appears to happen too often for me to believe that. Personally, I think either he doesn't care that he's being rude, or it's an ongoing stunt to show how he's such a "family man." I don't care whether it's arrogance, ignorance, or performance it's yet another reason not to vote for him.
