Re: bloggety goodness 

it has been said that i love baldies, and i have been encouraged to post this sentiment to the blog ...I am curious if this will appear.

higher math 

Dennis + "Meet the Press" = trainwreck

kids' piano recitals = priceless

(John Kerry + deferred nomination acceptance) / public opinion after a weekend to percolate = possibly a good strategy

Democratic Party fundraising time ≠ Republican Party fundraising time

Lori + dating = headshaking

Jumble / (Larry + Lori) < 2 minutes

Much serious and prolonged discussion re: the Iraqi prisoner scandal. No consensus on whether it is ever okay to treat people that way. Some feel that if the result is preventing another 9/11, it might be justifiable, espceially if the other side is not a country per se (e.g., Al Qaeda) and thus not subject to the strictures of the Geneva Convention. I feel that it is never okay and that we should be above this kind of treatment (people are people, we should be held to a higher standard, etc.) and pointed out that in this particular case, we're talking mostly about people who had been randomly rounded up off the streets for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and had no known connections to terrorism.

Lynndie: Still trailer trash. Open speculation over whether she'll send someone over to Jessica Lynch's place with a crowbar a la Tonya Harding in response to JL's condemnation of the situation.

Many think Jerry Springer is a viable and electable candidate for governor of Ohio. I will bow to their superior knowledge of the man within the realm of politics, but as a voter, I want to see something of substance from him other than big monetary contributions; I want to see him distance himself from that horrible show; and I want to start hearing what he's about. Right now, all he says to me is "let's make Ohio a laughingstock over something else."

Tim wonders how I can condemn the Jerry Springer show yet hold such affection for the equally train-wrecky Showbiz Moms & Dads. It's a good question, and I'm still strying to come up with a way to adequately describe the differences between the two for me.

Jumble performance: below average.

Back in the Swing 

In attendance (in order of arrival): Me, Larry, Tim, Khaled, special guest Ki, Chris C.

Treatment of Iraqi prisoners = despicable and inexcusable.

Lynndie = trailer trash.

Rummy: The longer he sticks around, the better for the Democrats.

Bush = beyond the point of no return. He's outta there.

Baseball: Um, some conclusion or another. (Remember the "wah-waah-wah-waah" sound the adults made in the Peanuts animated cartoons? That's what detailed baseball talk sounds like to me.)

Jacobs Field has a whole lot of empty seats.

The Fulton's chicken sandwich = heavenly.

One word: Hermit 

Larry's absence suggests this maybe his newfound path in life.

Enlightened about a Cleveland performing arts institution – the Hermit Club. Happy 100th!

Inaugural Fulton Recap 

Mike Coleman is not working it hard enough if he wants to move beyond what he's doing now.

We all miss Bob Edwards.

Ron Jeremy (NB: link possibly not acceptable for viewing at work) is repulsive, yet somehow gives hope to the "average" guy. [Ed: Ugh. No thanks.]

Schvitzing = good, even when a dour Russian matron beats the hell out of you with a broomlike object.

OSU football players + alleged robbery attempt = how stupid can you be?

What else am I missing?
