Tomorrow I will once again be home with a kid while my wife does her jury trial. The darn thing will probably last until Monday which isn't so bad because I'm normally home on Mondays. If it goes to Tuesday we are in a world of hurt. Meanwhile, after having... Continue reading

I've always wanted to write this (after seeing the big names do it). My blogging will be light to non-existant the next few days because I'm going to Washington, D.C. But I'm not going to some conference and I'm certainly not going so I can be intereviewed by CNN. Matt... Continue reading

might want to check out this interview of Shawn Ryan with Trib media reporter Maureen Ryan. If you aren't into The Shield you are so very wrong. They are available for rent. On that note, I've also enjoyed the first two epsiodes of Thief. FX doesn't seem to get the... Continue reading

Passover started tonight and since my family is Jewish it meant...seder. But, this year I was in charge of it.

I noticed on Drudge that Neil Young is releasing a song concerning the impeachment of the President. I am hoping someone can explain the "impeach Bush" meme.
