Status check

I'm late for my next tourist adventure. I keep promising more photos (I'm still overdue on Yellowstone and Gettysburg photos, now that I think about it) but I have to run out and do some more tourist stuff...so the photos will have to wait...again.

Here are a couple of shots just for fun...

No media bias here...move along, nothing to see...

Putting Money Where Mouths Are: Media Donations Favor Dems 100-1

Article actually does follow the money. Is anyone surprised?

Oh mighty Goracle, Alaska is calling you a liar!

From the local paper: "Right now the so-called summer of '08 is on pace to produce the fewest days ever recorded in which the temperature in Anchorage managed to reach 65 degrees."

Lucky me, I get to see Alaska's coldest summer ever. I should have brought a better coat. Damn you global warming!

North to Alaska

Go north, the rush is on.

Not so much of a rush, but I am here to work.  I'll be posting photos of non-work adventures here.

Today's recommendation : Glacier Brewhouse.  Awesome cask conditioned IPA last night.  Too bad they don't sell bottles to go!

Reducing my Carbon Footprint

Ok Goracle, let's see what you got!

Unfortunately due to the impending rain and my "learner's permit" (go ahead and snicker...a Harley rider with a learner's permit) my personal carbon reduction vehicle is located safely in the garage.

Al Gore -- You win!

The Goracle has shamed me enough and finally convinced me to do something to reduce my carbon footprint. Why, oh why didn't I see the light before now?

I'll report back later with the details of my sacrifice to the carbon footprint gods. For now, you'll just have to settle for the special report teaser advertisements and special report theme music:

Harry Reid is making me sick

From the Politico, Harry Reid present youtube evidence he is a total buffoon.

Evidently there is a new phase to global warming. Global warming now has the power to make people sick. That's according to sensationalists like Harry Reid. So not only does evil petroleum minutely increase the world's minute CO2 levels enough to melt the polar ice caps in just a few short years (despite the discovery of an arctic volcano that just miiiight have something to do with it), evil oil also is making poor americans sick. (never mind the rest of the world, since sensationalism seems to be an american monopoly)

Bad oil! BAD!

Wait...I have an idea...maybe it's not oil that is making us sick, it's the high level of bureaucratic manure that seems to be appearing at unnatural levels in all forms of media these days. Why, I think I might make a study of the increasing levels of bureaucratic manure (BM) in the political environment, the effects it has on increasing levels of US nausea, and it's side effects on the patience of the rest of the world.

I'll bet there is a direct link between BM and US nausea. There is in our house. And that is good enough for me to start spreading sensationalist headlines of my own, ala MSM evening talking heads:

"Tonight's headlines; some experts say there is increasing evidence that the rising levels of Washington BM is having a negative effect on American health. What does that mean for you? Our special report begins right after our special report theme music and special report graphics"
