- I'm not offended that Gov. Eliot Spitzer of New York got caught in a prostitution sting, I'm offended that he paid $4,000 to $5,000 an hour on a hooker. - And during his 30 second press conference yesterday (which has been replayed a million times), I can actually hear a cell phone go off in vibrate mode. Drives me crazy every time. - And speaking of hookers, only the media calls the customers "Johns." - Crazy murder/suicide last night of a high profile black couple in Dallas. (And, for what it's worth, the shooter published this blog yesterday.) - Fog is cool. - A treasurer for a high school volleyball team near Austin takes $15,000 from the team but pays it back quickly. The story then appears in the Austin American Statesman. DA John Bradley (who may be the most arrogant prosecutor in the state) reads the story and decides to pursue felony charges even those all of those involved had handled it "in house". - The Space Shuttle (a program which needs to be retired) fired off into space at 2:30 a.m. central time last night. - I hate that "Welcome Back" song that TXU plays in all of its commercials. (And, yes, I know its from the old sitcom.) - I finished Slaughterhouse Five and it was, in a word, great. I'm not a fan of science fiction, and I'm not real sure this qualifies as a science fiction book, but any novel that concerns itself with time travel, free will, true history, and the Crucifixion will get my attention.
