George is, of course, very easy on the eyes, but I’m a little disappointed that he beat out Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. Dr. McDreamy, for the honors this year.
Thanks to people who like to send me links, I see that – oh, joy – I’ve been nasty-spoofed again. It’s very funny, in a perverted kind of way, but God Almighty, don’t people get tired of pulling these juvenile pranks? I wish I had the time to dog other people all over the Internet and impersonate them for some insane (but unknown) reason. Oh, geez, what am I saying? That’s the last thing I’d wish.
There are actually much more important things to talk about today – like Iran (where I wish to God I could send some people). Little pissant country that it is, Iran bears keeping an eye on. It has plutonium and nuclear capability. It hates the U.S., it hates Israel – hell, it hates just about everybody. It’s courting al-Qaeda. That’s frightening.
There was an earthquake (about a 6.5, I think) off Japan overnight, spawning tsunami warnings. Even though the ensuing tsunami wasn’t anything much (about 16” high), how great that there was sufficient time in which to get the warnings out.
Has anybody heard any buzz about the new version of Windows – Vista -- about to be unveiled? Good? Bad? About the same? The next time I get a computer (which might not be that far in the future since my PC seems to be possessed), that’s probably what will be on it so I’d kind of like to know what to expect. I’m very happy with XP but anything better is always … better.
Former and now convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to prison in western Maryland this morning to begin serving his six-year prison sentence for a fraudulent deal to buy a fleet of casino ships in Florida. He’s still awaiting sentencing on his corruption conviction.
Who would you all like to see in the ’08 presidential race? It’s a wide open race, the first since 1952 without an incumbent or a sitting Vice-President in the mix. As this point, I’d say the possibilities are virtually limitless.
P.S. Since Blogger can't seem to manage to fix many of the other bugs plaguing us all, I guess it's too much to hope for that they might provide us with a mechanism for blocking unwelcome visitors, huh?
