kenya believe it?
article II, section 1 of the united states constitution states: "no person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the united states, at the time of the adoption of this constitution, shall be eligible to the office of president;" meaning, of course, barack obama cannot be our president because he was born in kenya. oy.
cal thomas' right to choose
cal thomas makes the church choice for barack obama: he should use jimmy carter as a role model. thomas: if as president, barack obama adopts Carter as his church role model, he, too, will serve as an example to the nation that there is a power higher than a president's and, as scripture reminds us, "those who seek him shall ever surely find him." hey cal. stfu.
hey wisconsin. have another drink.
does wisconsin have a drinking problem? the new york times thinks so. so does the milwaukee journal-sentinal. here's a happy statistic from their series wasted in wisconsin: more than 475,000 people in wisconsin have at least one drunken-driving conviction on their record. nearly 8,000 have five or more. don't you get to a point in life when you realize waking up and throwing up should not both be daily occurrences? don't you eventually...um...grow up?
tim is safe in indiana. not india.
my friend tim ewing answered his phone this morning, "i'm in indiana. not india." the news of the terrorist attacks in india, combined with tim's absence from skype or ichat worried me: tim's diversity work has taken him to mumbai several times in the last few years. "when i heard about the bombings at the taj mahal hotel, i pulled out my ipod and showed my mom pictures of the inside of the hotel – i stayed there in july. cafe leopold, just around the corner, frequented by artists, poets...was one of my favorites. it was bombed too." in yonago, japan, i have yet another reason to be thankful on this thanksgiving.
