I admit it. I like blogging. I found out somewhat by default; even though I like to write, cannot spell (when I was a child you never would see me near a Spelling Bee), and I am now in house slippers, sweats and I am sucking down (slowly) a coffee (it is a bad brand of cofee but I like it).
I have an old Redskins ball cap that sometimes I forget I am wearing. It is greasy and usually I would not be caught dead with it in public; talk about a comfortable, and laid-back lifestyle. Their is no money in blogging, at least not for me. I keep hearing about funds and blogging, but it illudes me, but the lifestyle of a blogger does not.
This morning the Washington Post was brimming with news that inspired this snippet. Perhaps the best thing is for you to read the Post online today and make up your own mind about it, that is, what do you think about it?
I have decided that it feeds somewhat into my view of the world so as usual I like it, but I have read the Post for 40 years and no I am not the norm!
On the lighter side, since I have dug up large dinosaurs in my past life, and was a dinosaur nerd when I was a little kid, the unveiling of a dinosaur, found by the Chicago Field Museum’s Paul Serano, a great Paleontologist, is of interest to me. The article discusses the discovery of a strange, broad-jawed Nigerasaurus, a long neck that has characteristics of a duckbill. This is truly strange.
An article by Marc Kaufman entitled, Katrina, Rita Caused Forestry Disaster, is really interesting to me and an example, from my standpoint, of just how insidious Global Warming can be!!!!
Another article is entitled, Scientists Fault Climate Exhibit Changes, by James Grimaldi and Jaqueline Trescott. More shame on the Smithsonian Natural History Museum if it proves to be true.
I never heard of any of these writers. I have see Eilpren and Fahrentolds articles, numerous by Broder and Bob Woodward over the years and some old Bernstein stuff. Eugine Robinson (everything) and recently Vicki Croke’s article on the Craigheads. They are good writers because they, from my standpoint, do such interesting, complex, pieces.
The “Terminater” Governor is back at it and lately he is doing very muscular things in Government, you have to admit Shriver and Kennedy do influence his moves or so it seems. Read, California Court Rejects SUV Mileage Rules, and see if you agree with me. The article is by Frank Ahrens and Carrie Johnson.
I new a Carrie Johnson once; she was a ranch child, rah! rah! type and was not a serious person. This Carrie Johnson seems to get how important this issue is. Lest I forget, and I do not want to do that, so does Frank Aherns. Please read the front page of today’s Washington Post. It is full of interesting news…
