Today my "ex" hits another milestone date. As my faithful readers know, a very long time ago I forgot her birthday. I swore that I never would again and I haven't. Even though we've been divorced for 2 decades.


Yesterday the US Supreme Court dealt another blow to Dubya & Co. regarding the hostages being held in Gitmo. He wasn't happy.

Just because you're an intelligence officer doesn't mean you are smart.

I know I have some readers from the affected area. Leave a comment, please, about how things are going in your part of the country.

Congress passed a bill to extend unemployment benefits by three additional months. Dubya already has announced he will veto it, but the legislation appears to have enough votes to override him. Why doesn't Dubya want to assist people who are suffering from his failed economic policies and lack of oversight? Does the real world even exist outside his small social circle?

1/3rd of the seats in the Senate are up for grabs in November and the GOP's best wish is that they only lose three of those they already hold. I think thats wishful thinking.

So, is Budweiser going to remain an American beer or will in be taken over (hostile) by Brazilian-Belgian InBev? Or merged (friendly) with the Mexican company Grupo Modelo SA?
Their theme parks may be sent to the auction block

Lets make this simple. What airlines don't charge for extra luggage? Southwest. Thats it.

And USAir is starting to slash and burn capacity and jobs.

Exxon-Mobil is going to off-load their 2,200 gas stations in the US because they are losing money.

Its TGIF and also Friday-the-13th. Do you duck & cover or party hardy? Have a great day and weekend. I'll have more for you later and, of course, more over the weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
