Glad to see its finally moving forward. Though I'll probably never use it since I'm not rooted in that part of the state, but any step forward is a step forward and could usher in more projects of this kind. Wouldn't mind being able to take a train to Rochester and visit the family, etc.
Might as well, the thing doesn't work anyway. Every other month or so we hear that another test failed. Either the missle missed its mark, failed to detonate or just wouldn't even launch out of the silo like it did last week. Canada is smart not wasting their money on this - universal child care will do more for them than missles stuck in their silos.
I have to admit I'm totally wrapped up with the show, and now its solidified as a new story line has emerged that I can certainly relate to and damn is it good. Never is my life did I think I'd actually tune into ABC for two hours - the first spend watching "Extreme Makeover - Home Edition." Got to give them kudos for finally putting something together thats worth watching - though I'm not catching the episodes of "Family Guy" but then again that show doesn't have a "Big 'Mo."
More that writing a blog, I'm fascninated with reading them, again probably a little bit just to live vicariously through other people - I'm kind of boring. I have loved reading news for quite a while - I've had subscriptions since my junior year in high school. I frequent many of the blogs listed in my blogroll and now I have an RSS reader on the home iMac. Yesterday I was half a day behind and had 71 entries to read - granted I've heard some people read hundreds of blogs a day but I think thats excessive.
Yesterday however, I read this and it totally became clear to me why I like reading blogs. Some people like to believe in a higher power and all that supernatural jazz, but I like to believe in humanity. I find it so much more powerful, and, well tangible. One person's trial and tribulations and following success can make so much more of an impact than any number of hours in a church, etc. I suppose its really pretty much the same thing, I substitue one story for another but a fine line exists nonetheless and one I prefer. Thanks Dan for sharing.
A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are a delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom?
(I didn't write this, just thought it was hilarious enough to share. I don't know who did, but does anyone really know?!)
I've been loving this store ever since I moved to the St. Paul for school - and now they have a website! My day is looking up! This is the best place to look for gifts and presents for just about any occasion.

RICHMOND, VA. -- Virginians who wear their pants so low their underwear shows may want to think about investing in a stronger belt.
The state House of Delegates passed a bill 60-34 Tuesday authorizing a $50 fine for anyone who displays his or her underpants in a "lewd or indecent manner."
Lionell Spruill Sr., a Democrat who opposed the bill, had pleaded with his colleagues to remember their own youthful fashion follies. He said the measure was an unconstitutional attack on young blacks that would force parents to take off work to accompany their children to court for making a fashion statement.
The bill's sponsor, Algie T. Howell, has said constituents were offended by the exposed underwear. Howell, also a Democrat, and Spruill are both black.
Its amazing backward thinking like this still happens in modern day America. I just don't know what to say about it, but who wants to take a trip to Virginia and wear some low-riding pants?!
I'm kind of upset about this, I thought she seemed like a great leader and was leading HP in a positive direction. And I'm not just saying that because HP sells Apple iPods, I generally thought HP was managing to forge and maintain its place in the market.
Granted, most people have never heard of A9.com, but they've just come out with a pretty cool new yellow pages featuring actuall photos. I'm going to Chicago in March and wanted to know where, for example, California Pizza Kitchen, was located. They not only show you a pizza of the place you're searching, but will show you the whole block and further if you like.
This is just the start, but the current list of cities and their surrounding areas include:
* New York City (Manhattan)
* Los Angeles
* Portland, Oregon
* San Francisco and the Bay Area
SebiMeyer posts this interesting quote from 1967 which I think is a good read to temper our enthusiasm for the Iraqi elections. The last thing we would want to happen would be to get overy excited and lax in our judgements for the situation in Iraq. An election is not a magic bullet, but hopefully it can go along way to helping transition the country.
