It happens the world over...

Indoneasean troops invaded a tiny island recently and deposed its leader, an australian surfer. Another fateful blow for democracy worldwide. No longer do we live under the torturous rule of surfers.

Meanwhile, the president has admitted the intelligence for the war was wrong and it's

I seem to have this effect on people...

It seems like every time I enter a party, it either clears out or become a much more lame party, which I've come to accept, given my lame-ass nature.

But cities?!? Now I just feel a little insulted.

Before I came to Minnepolis, it was the nation's most literate city. But now that I'm here, it's slipped down to second behind those unwashed hippies in Seattle. Furthremore, people seem to be leaving in droves.'s enough to make a boy feel unpopular. Well, even more so.

Cherished Childhood memories and sexual predators

When I was younger, every Christmas season (and yes, I said Christmas, you godless liberal atheists...and other religions) my folks and I used to go the library and check out a record of various "ethnic" Christmas songs form around the world, because we're those kind of open-minded people, right?

Anyway, my favorite song by far was Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey because I liked the make the donkey noises along with the donkey on the recording (I didn't have many friends).

So, last Christmas, I had come home with my precious few days off of work, and my girlfriend at the time had for some reason never heard of the Dominic or his multi-ethnic friends, so I dashed straight-off to the library to find it. Well, it turns out that the Fort Dodge Public Library is one amongst many libraries that now bans adults unaccompanied by children in the children's section of the library (to attempt to stop kidnapping and sexual predators). So after a few moments browsing in the children's section, I was promptly asked to leave.

Turns out they had gotten rid of their record collection years ago anyway, so it didn't matter, but I still felt a little depressed getting kicked out of the library because they thought I was a sexual predator when I was simply trying to relive one of my most cherished chidlhood memories.

But all was not lost, because today while randomly downloading seasonal music, I stumbled onto a copy of Dominic, and have been listening to it ad naseum.

And to think, if it were up to the ACLU, I would have to listen to Dominic, the Italian-American Secular Gift-Exchange Quadraped.

Thank God for Bill O'Reilley.

Racism is bad? Controversial, but true

Today has been declared the 1st annual "Blog Against Racism Day." I tried to think of many different high-minded essays I could write about the evils of racism, but each one just ended up with me becomng depressed that it's still necessary to be against racism. I mean, come the fuck on, folks. According to my calendar, it's the year 2005. We're still not passed that shit? Anyway, I figure that no one who goes out of their way to read a blog written by someone like me is very racist, so in the end, it's a moot point.

But try to to punch a racist person in the back of the head today.

You know, to help out.
