Class of 2021

Granddaughter Leanna heads off for her first day of kindergarten.

Was that just five years ago? Sigh...

Once again...

The "fake news" Daily Show exposes blatant hypocrisy. Do none of the "real" networks know how to catalog and edit video?

As the stomach turns...

All this Sarah Palin stuff is driving me nuts. I've always hated small town redneck melodramatic hypocrisy, and to see it displayed as somehow being admirable makes me ill.

Sorry, Obama, this isn't a matter of family privacy. Palin can't run on a platform of "family values" when the web is saturated with photos of her underage daughter swilling whiskey from the bottle; published statements where the governor opposes "explicit" sex education in favor of abstinence; and copies of line-item vetoes where she slashed funding for programs assisting unwed teen-aged mothers who were unfortunate enough not to be white, rich, and covered by mommy's taxpayer-funded health care insurance.

Of course, the rumors are that Palin's fifth child is actually her daughter Bristol's. The allegation is circumstantially supported by a family portrait in which the teen is either pregnant or has swallowed a cantaloupe whole, and a fortuitously-timed eight month absence from high school, supposedly due to mono.

What's most egregious is expecting any rational adult to believe that Palin, a woman in her 40s, pregnant with her fifth child- one with Down's Syndrome, no less- would be so stupid and irresponsible as to travel for 22 hours after her water broke, in order to deliver in a general hospital in the hinterlands of Alaska rather than admit herself to one of Houston's top medical centers.

So Palin drags out Bristol and claims the teen is five months pregnant, making it mathematically impossible for her daughter to be the true mother. How much you want to bet the daughter "prematurely" delivers a baby with a healthy, full-term birth weight? Too late, suckers... the election's over."

There's a very simple way out of this, one that would have eliminated the need to further shame her unwed pregnant teenage daughter. All Palin has to do is turn over copies of her medical records related to the delivery. Simple, direct, and the issue is closed forever. And it ain't gonna happen, because somewhere in that hospital is a health care professional with integrity who will refuse to play along.

I suspect there are things that will be revealed in the days to come that will curl our collective toes. And just remember, this is McCain's first big decision as a potential President. If he can't spot a hick poseur, how in the world can he be expected to run a country?

VP pick is not her baby's mama?

Normally I just dismiss this kind of stuff out of hand, but the entire election has been veering dangerously toward Bizarroland, and this might just send it over the edge.

Who'd have thought Maury Povich might become essential to the candidate vetting process?

So there.  
The e-mail address is now something other than saga. used to be until December, 2007 when the domain name broker Trout Zimmer made an offer I couldn't refuse. Giving up and adopting created a significant problem, however. I had acquired the domain name in 1993, and had since that time used as my sole e-mail address. How to let people know that was no longer but rather which is longer than and more letters to type than and somehow less aesthetically pleasing than but actually just as functional as I sent e-mails from the address to just about everybody I knew who had used in the past decade and a half but noticed that some people just didn't seem to get the word about the change. So it occurred to me that if I were generate some literate, valid text in which was repeated numerous times and posted it on a bunch of different pages- say, a blog indexed by Google- that someone looking for would notice this paragraph repeated in hundreds of locations, would read it, and figure out that no longer is the they thought it was. That's the theory, anyway. Ok, I'm done. Move along. Nothing to see here...
