Supreme Court hears the gay marriage question

If you’re against gay marriage, why aren’t you in favor of gay divorce?

I happen to think gay divorce court would be compelling tv.

Where Bars Outnumber Grocery Stores

Wisconsin.

Big surprise, eh?

It is the only state I’ve been to where the guy working the joint will pump your gas, flip your burger, pull you another draft, and get you a dozen nightcrawlers all without washing his hands.

They’re probably drinking a lot up there this week, given that football game last Sunday.

Blood on the Tracks

Yesterday, January 20, 2015, was the 40th anniversary of the release of Bob Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks.”

Just in case you are keeping track…

This is a good time to bring up the story of my kids starting to listen to Dylan. We were in the car about 5 years ago. “Tangled Up In Blue” was playing on the radio. I told the kids that the song was about 35 years old and that I could listen to it every day. They both agreed it was a good song. We then had a nice discussion about what they were currently listening to. They didn’t think much of what was popular had staying power. They both had a suggestion or two, but I couldn’t begin to tell you what the songs were.

From that conversation my daughter really became a Dylan fan. She now has his entire catalog on her ipod.

Yeah, she and I are both “old school” ipod users.

It really did disappoint me that Apple pulled that product with no warning.

The five year old didn’t show up to a birthday party. He has been billed a no show fee.

I don’t think it necessary to comment further.

I have seen my future…

And I do not like what is coming.

I’m talking about medical care. It is going to really suck when I get to the age that I require more medical care.

I was driving the wife to various appointments this week. It was an awful experience. There is no medical care. There are only specialists performing procedures. There is no coordination between specialists (unless they think a malpractice suit is in their near future).

You will have to be your own general contractor when it comes to your healthcare.

Doing the Jobs America Won’t Have

Heh

The program is really quite simple: we insource design, outsource manufacturing, import a subsidized consumer base, and offload social costs. And we do it all selflessly for The Economy. But besides he and we, others benefit as well. Blue collar workers no longer need take dirty and dangerous work that can be performed much cheaper by Mexicans. Similarly, grueling STEM studies and pointy protractors are but shades of the past for American students, whose services are hardly now required. There are no losers here.

Whoever is behind that blog is really funny.

The Audacious Epigone has the call on the Cowboys game correct.

Happy New Year!

Maybe I’ll do some more posting this year.

How’s that for an overly demanding resolution?
