All I ask is spell his name properly!

FOR THE CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I guess the BBC isn't seeing the "Massive Taliban Spring Offensive" (tm) they'd hoped for this year. Oh well. Maybe Western Civilization will collapse, like, next year.

I mean, a broken clock is right, *eventually*.

You know you want this. Admit it.

The Irish. Still causing trouble.

You know, come to think about it, all this Global War on Terror really needs is a new flock of wild geese.

Interesting little note from Time magazine.

So, if each Mexican "migrant" worker works 2,300 hours, and sends home 100% of earnings, you get a million "migrant" workers in the U.S.

At a remittance rate of 25%, you have four million "migrant" workers in the country.

Here's the bottom line: If Time can find out how much "migrant" workers sent home, and the average pay per hour for "migrant" workers, it's probably not beyond them to find out average remittance rate, giving us a fairly accurate count of the actual number of "migrant" workers. Going one step further, were they to ask after the average number of "migrant" family members accompanying each "migrant" worker, they'd have a good take on the total number of "migrants" in the country.

I hear vague remarks about 5 to 20 million Mexican "migrants" in the U.S. I'd love a slightly more precise number, and Time looks to be at the point of providing it.

Come to think of it, you'd also get an idea of the total value of the "migrant" sector of the economy. Given the size of remittances, it'd be, what, about $100 billion? About the size of the teen (12 - 17 years old) market. That's sizeable, but not really all that big.

We could probably have A Year Without a Mexican, and not be too put out.

Say what you will about this year's summer weddings in Tblisi, Georgia (THE OTHER GEORGIA, YOU NIHILIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), at least I'll be in Louisville, Kentucky.

I'm an achiever. And proud I am of all the other achievers. They know what ties the room together, and where to begin micturation.

Nice marmot! (A great pickup line at REI.)

My father died in 1975. I didn't really miss him.

My mother died in 2003. I was a basket case for a year or so.

Now I see deaths online of people I've never met, but who impact my thoughts as much as my parents might ever have.

I think someone could profitably mine that vein which might be called "blog-parenting".

Just sayin'.

The Fifth Annual Intl. Eat an Animal for PETA Day.

I may be a day late, but I'll make up for it by having a lunch that involves at least two dead animals.

Mark it (for next year), dude!

First this is legalized.

Now, the floodgates are about to open.

I'm sure that the next challenges will be from polygamists, polygynists, polyamorists, pedophiles, animal "lovers", and dyslexic serial-killing lesbian bikers who want to adopt.

Sometimes your reason for existence is to serve as a cautionary tale for others. Poor Germany.

But they love each other, and that's all that matters, right?

Eat Mor Chikin!

In the famous words of Troy McClure "Don't kid yourself Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance, he'd eat you and everyone you care about!"

Global Warming Causes Alarming Rise in Vicious Northern Carnivore Population!

Hillary was in Selma yesterday.

I caught a bit of her speech on the radio. She needs a voice coach. Every time I hear her, she sounds preachy and vicious.
