Hockey News

November 30, 2006

I was able to watch the Stars and Blackhawks game last night. To be honest, I was a lot more impressed with the Hawks game than I expected to be. I’m kind of excited to see if this is what things will really be like under Savard. Of course, Dallas helped them a lot. From […]

11/30 Morning Report

November 30, 2006

I’m still trying to get back into the swing of things. First it was the holidays. Now, I’m starting back into school to finish a degree. And, I work weekend nights. Makes it tough to keep up. So… I actually found this right before I went off for Thanksgiving—and lost the link. The standard argument […]

More Ranting Kossacks!

November 30, 2006

THIS was a rather unsettling claim. Someone did a study that supposedly proves that there is a direct link between mental illness and support for President Bush. The link to the original article is HERE. I have no reason to dispute the actual data. However, given that the only people studied were mental patients, I […]

11/29 Morning Report

November 29, 2006

Ever wonder what they teach at some of the nicer colleges? Here is a New York Daily News article to give you some ideas. (…so much for our universities being bastions of social order…) On the subject of social order, this post at A Keyboard And A .45 was pretty informative. Follow the links on […]

News, And A Quote For The Day

November 29, 2006

The NY Times is not happy. It seems the Supreme Court won’t let the Times have it’s way. The thing I like most about this story is the way it shows how the Times turns on those who choose not to help their agenda. I suspect that Fitzgerald, the hero of Plame-gate, is now persona […]

11/28 Morning Report

November 28, 2006

I thought I would point out some good commentary today. I spent a good deal of my overnight surfing around various blogs. I found a lot of good stuff to ponder, too. There are a lot of people worthy of remembrance…some even from other countries. All warriors deserve honor. Especially those who can be humble […]

11/27 Morning Report

November 27, 2006

Right after I found out JR had honored me at A Keyboard and a .45, I found an article I really enjoyed. It seems an anti-gun Mayor was arrested on weapons charges! Now, the gun was probably legal, registered, and so on. So, technically his membership in Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) wasn’t violated. But, […]

Veteran’s Day Surprise

November 27, 2006

On Monday November 13, a Marine (…ok…former Marine…if there is such a thing…) friend of ours from our homeschool co-op, told us about Golden Corral’s “Veterans Appreciation Day”. According to the corporate website, Veterans eat dinner for free on the first Monday after Veterans Day. As it turned out, we also had some coupons for […]

11/26 Morning Report

November 26, 2006

The Lebanese cabinet has approved an international court to try suspects in the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri. Given the boycott by Hezbollah cabinet members, and the assassination of another, by law there is an insufficient attendance to vote on such measures. This leaves it questionable whether the trials can, or will, actually […]

Lessons In Honor

November 25, 2006

On October 22, 2006, I posted a message on the passing of Marine LCpl Manoukian. Rest assured, the prayer in that post (and every other In Memorium I write) is one we pray regularly for the families of the fallen. Just some simple words I wrote once—and could not think of a better way to […]
