Boston Marathon Runners...

Lets all applaud Suni Williams. She's an astronaut for NASA who hasn't had an inter-state kidnapping and attempted murder charge. She's qualified for - and has decided to run in - the Boston Marathon.
However, she won't be in Boston next month. She actually won't be anywhere on the planet next month. Suni Williams is currently in-flight at the International Space Station. She's decided to run on a treadmill.
She's also not planning to be awake at the time of the race. Her sleep schedule is on Russian time, so she'll most likely run the race at another time.

Let me recap... she's running the Boston Marathon at another time, and in another place.

I'll be running the Boston Marathon as well, however, I will most likely be watching a baseball game in my apartment at the time, so I'll run it later on a treadmill somewhere outside of Boston.

Writing as a career.

Is this the kind of writing jobs there are out there? Any idiot can regurgitate simple common sense. Maybe that's why the auther listed his company, but not his name.
No wonder people tell me that I should write... they know that the pool of talent is very shallow.

And then there's Maggie...

It's easy to think that no one on this planet really cares deep down inside for anyone else. A simple drive around Plano will help you understand that no one seems to have any consideration for anyone else.
And then, I read a story about Maggie Catherwood.
Maggie had been waiting for a new liver. The day it came, she was asked to share her liver with a baby she had never met, in a family she had never heard of.
Maggie, and Allison Brown - the baby that received a second chance thanks to Maggie's love - both deserve recognition here for fighting against the selfishness that exists just about everywhere else.

Tap Water.

This is not where we should be focusing government investigations or directing tax-payer funds.
I won't even pretend like I understand the circumstances in this shooting, but one officer fired 31 times (according to the Yahoo!NEWS article). I don't have a working knowledge of fire-arms, but I believe that a standard magazine loaded hand gun holds 17 bullets (including the one in the chamber). That means that officer Oliver had to reload his weapon.
Doesn't that give you a minute to think, "Is that guy really armed? Should I really re-load and fire 14 more bullets into this vehicle?"

Don't you think...

...that Capitol Punishment would be appropriate? This just makes me sick to my stomach. I can't imagine my little girl seeing something like this.

Somebody should take this guy out back and put a bullet in his head.

The Eyes of March?

This is why you should educate your children properly on Shakespeare. Had Yahoo! appropriately chastised and berated those that search for the "eyes of march" I would not be forced to do so here.
Here's your sign...

Ugly Sorority Chicks?

Is this really news? I thought that this was pretty much standard operating procedure for sororities. I question why these girls were accepted into the sorority if they weren't up to Delta Zeta standards. I won't say that I agree with any of this. As a matter of fact - I think it sucks - but I don't care enough to write more than this.

Show about Nothing?

Just because Jerry Seinfeld successfully did a show about nothing, doesn't mean that this crap will fly!

Why Social Security doesn't have any money.

If you're pretending to be retarded, don't go to court to ably contest a Canadian traffic ticket.
