Skattershooting while looking ahead.....
- It wasn't too long ago that highway 380
ran right by the courthouse. I mean, right
by it. Can you imagine what it would be like if the bypass
had not been built?
- Want to create some funny billboards or
signs? You can and
its pretty funny.
- Remember the principal in Ferris
not doing so well these day.

- I didn't know Eddie Van Halen and
Valerie Bertinelli were permanently seperated (but they are a little
slow in getting a divorce).
- Here are Bush's debate notes.
(OK, that will hack off the right wing, but it's still funny).
- Do you
like popping bubbles in that packaging material? Knock yourself out.
- One of the funniest videos I've seen
(especially in my line of work), is Chris Rock's "How Not to Get
Your A%$ Kicked By The Police". You can watch it here
(it will take a while to download) and let me warn you it carries an R
rating for language.
- Since it is now State Fair time, it
bugs the heck out of me that every local news anchor person has to say
"I can't wait to get one of those Fletcher Corny Dogs." Do you think
any of them have actually ever had one?
- I went and saw Open Water. Very good.
- I finally saw Fight Club after all
these years. It doesn't have much to do with guy's fighting but has a
whole lot to do with being a really quirky and odd movie. The last
scene is incredible.
- Along Came Polly was
- One of my favorite lines from the movie
(which is a comedy) is something that's not funny at all: "It's not
about what happened in the past, or what you think might happen in the
future. It's about the ride . . . . There is no point in going through
all this crap, if your are not going to enjoy the ride. And you know
what... when you least expect something great might come along.
Something better then you even planned for.
- "Too many good docs are getting out of
the business. Too many OB/GYN's aren't able to practice their love with
women all across the country."—President Bush on Sept. 6, 2004, in
Poplar Bluff, Mo.
- This is another
video/cartoon which is absolutely hillarious. It shows a cartoon
Bush and a cartoon Kerry taking shots at each other and I literally
laughed out loud. Once, again, there is a language advisory.
- I'm cheating and actually writing this
on the morning of Saturday, October 2, 2004. A cold front has moved
through, it's cloudy, and college football comes on at 11:00 a.m. This
is absolutely may favorite time of year.
- 28 Days Later was a
zombie flick that I at actually liked.
- A prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney's
office, Shannon Ross, died in her sleep the other day. It caused me to
stop down because she graduated from the same law school in the same
year as I did. She was also at the very top of her class. She was
- Why in the world do criminal trials
move so slowly in California? The Scott Peterson case would be
over in Texas in about a week.
