Woohooo -- finding the cool sites this week! First, an online journal that hits close to home. Then (thanks to one of my employers, I can read the Chronicle of Higher Education online, to see what interesting things the government has planned. New attacks on us liberal college intellectuals, apparently. That's kind of funny, seeing as how most of my fully-employed grad school friends (like this guy and this guy) are all pretty conservative. But hey -- what can we expect from a man who acts as though a "C" average means that his education was worth anything?

Still, all these exciting happenings in the hell of adjunct world are nothing compared to THE BEST of all -- the hell of Bad Baby Names!! What are these people thinking???

Ok -- thought it was working correctly. We'll see. Happy to say that the ever-awful Tim Eyman got no ballot initiatives in this year. So you know, Tim Eyman is to me the antithesis of everything the founding fathers wanted. His entire raison d'etre seems to be to do end-runs around the people elescted by a majority and get taxes abolished. Good for him -- he's already had to fess up to the public about embezzling from his first non-profit -- and now he's soliciting donations for his legal defense fund. What a jerk. This is where one wishes instant karma were part of the Gospels. Don't know what Jesus would drive, but Tim Eyman drives a big-ass SUV. He even convinced the taxpayers of Washington State to repeal most of the tag fees on car registrations -- flat rate now, folks. Apparently, Mr. Eyman and his ilk have somehow convinced folks that graduated taxes hurt the little guy. Just one word here -- "Bastards."

Oh Joy -- my comments are now working. Firmly resolve to blog more -- especially as I am now discovering more to blog about.
Ok -- Squawkbox doesn't work. Still working on it. Also using a crap book for a Summer World History course. Guess which one!
