How Did We Ever Get Along Without This?

NASCAR Romance

I saw these in Kroger the other night and could not believe it. I gave NASCAR one chance at the Bristol night race a few years ago. I can honestly say I don’t get it.

One thing I can say for sure is that I can do without books that bring to mind images of NASCAR drivers and/or fans being “romantic”.

Ann Coulter-Rollins?

“You will learn who your daddy is.” That’s funny.

I usually think Henry Rollins is a jackass, but I like this video much better than Coulter’s most recent, and I think he’s pegged her pretty accurately here–at least it’s more dignified.

Who the hell is she anyway? What Ann Coulter has done in political commentary recently parallels what has happened in country music in the last 15 years or so. Good looking women get signed by a record label and marketed as “country”, not because they are country, but because they are marketable there.

It seems like Coulter just showed up on the scene a few years ago, looked around and said, “hmm…all the other hot chicks are blabbing like idiots on behalf of the Democrats. I can be the only hot chick blabbing like an idiot on behalf of the Republicans and sell a lot of books–the market’s wide open!”

She’s not even hot. I mean, for a Republican maybe, but not in general.

Can’t Wait to See Gore’s Graph for Mars

National Geographic’s article on Martian Warming

“The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars,” he said.

By no means does this suggest we shouldn’t be reducing our energy consumption.  I do what I can to reduce…I love the idea of reducing my con$umption.  My definition of “green power” is spending as little as I have to on electricity and fuel…thus empowering my green.
