I have a daughter in Stillwater Ok and although the winds have greatly moterated the rains have not, and since Stillwater is a swamp they really don't need the rain right now. To avoid the storm the football game between OSU and a diddily football team was advanced to 12:00 local to avoid the storm. OSU won by the by.

"Plus she has 5 kids. Shoot - the VP job will be a piece of cake compared to managing that." I would agree that raising five kids is a big job, but if (when?) elected she will have 100 kids to deal with.

Carl, if you were a squad leader in my company, after berating my soldier you would find yourself humping his backpack in addition to yours for a full month.

As a sidelight, my uncle spent most of WWII chasing Japanese subs in the Bering Straight on a Coast Guard Cutter. Try and tell me he wasn't a tough sailor.

UJ if you will allow me, you didn't get the funny part. "And tits doesn't even belong on the list. Tits this is toots, toots tits." Actually the radio station also played a bit where he uses the word moron alot. That's why you can't say moron on the radio but you can on TV. That is just too weird for words.

Every American should visit the graves at Normandy just to remember these great men (and women). Remember the only territory we want is enough to bury those who died liberating others.

Peter, with all due respect, I disagree. Not that Yanks aren't great, we are, but I have had my time with diggers and one of my daughter's friend owes his life to a good to go digger. People are measured by the quality of their friends. Australians are good friends, so we are doing something right.

Congrats again and thanks for the link. I rarely went south of Green so I am fairly ignorant of what others are doing.

Congrats Matt. I assume it was at Chicago Circle. Both my wife and I got our grad degrees at UofI Shampoo-Bananars. By the way. If you lived in Connecticut, went into service and came back, your college educations is free at state institutions. Once every month my students bring around a paper to indicate that they are doing well. That's it. Studnet in the CT National Guard can also get a free education while in the guard. The Bob I have mentioned ocasionally is now a student of mine, literally, he is in my Astronomy course.

You want a story? Ok, Bob got back in August (10th mountain). Last winter they were escorting "valuable Americans" and got ambushed by 40-60 Taliban. They returned fire and one of the "valuable Americans" asked if they wanted air support, of course they would like to have air cover. 20 minutes later 2 A-10's flew in and unloaded everything on the Taliban's positions. About 10 minutes later the A-10's left and there were more living Taliban. The unit moved on.

I want to know the name of the worthless state's attorney so I can part of the destruction of any political career he may want. There is more than one worthless piece of crap lawyer in this story. I know there are a lot of good lawyers out there, but these two pieces of scum aren't it.

By the way one thing he said bugged me, so I went to LANL (as they have a Nuclear Design team) to see if he worked there. He appears not to be employed by Los Alamos. By the way, I went to several ranking college web sites and though Santa Cruz is rated well, it loses to almost all the UC schools (like Davis or LA), and lags far behind schools like Penn State and my grad school UofI Champaign-Urbana.

Matt's response reminded me of a dialog in Spongebob Squarepants (Yes I am 54 and watch the show): Mr. Crabs: There are 13 words you are never to say. Squidward: I thought there were only 7 words. Mr. Crabs: Not if you're a sailor. By the way, am I supposed to inclose misspellings? If so I apologize in advance.
