Temple of Me

Welcome. All web sites are temples to their creators. Temple of Me will reflect what interests me, Temple of Me. I am a husband, father (twice), American, and liberal. I live in a "Red state" in the South. I am nearsighted, ambidextrous and over 30. Actually, I'm 153.33% of thirty.

  • Confess to crying at the movies! - Blork Blog and ni.vu.ni.connu offer each month 12 Monkeys. This month I'm stepping up to the podium and confessing that I cry at movies. We're not talking every now and then. I'm just a fountain of tears. I easily allow...
  • War - Four pages of photos from Iraq for those looking to see some of the effects of war. Please note: no one had a latte after the director yelled "cut!"; these are humans killed or maimed. Why do I link to...
  • I Do A Quiz - Which Founding Father Are You?...
  • MLB, Tu Fais Dur! - From ESPN: "The game drew just 6,899 despite a kids' opening day promotion. On Friday night, the Expos drew 30,112, the smallest crowd for an Olympic Stadium opener since 1985." Well, duh. You screw the fans for years and then...
  • Gay or Asian Update - Joey daVilla updates the Gay or Asian debacle. I still wonder where was the uproar when the first article ( Gay or Guido ) hit the streets. My Italian-American brethren don't seem to organize well. This should prove the point...
  • The Fallen - In World War II America didn't shy away from mourning the soldiers who fell in battle. We understood that in a war people die. Photos of fields of crosses told the story of those who stormed Normandy. In windows families...
  • America has a choice - At BoingBoing Mark Frauenfelder noticed that our tax dollars are funding RNC propaganda. What he missed was that the President is badly in need of a press release writer. I fixed the paragraph: America has a choice: It can continue...
  • Damn Straight Skippy - Back in February I touched on why I write this blog. Anil just explained why popularity wasn't the reason in a well written post you shouldn't miss. (Of course, he wasn't talking about me personally, but many bloggers with similar...
  • But why???? - For those of us with children: Steven (of The Sneeze fame) has discovered why our children exhibit such erratic behavior. I'm having my daughter tested tomorrow....
  • A Community Meme - I never do those "Friday Five" sorts of questions. It's rare I need a reason to post. But Neil Turner had a good idea...a community meme. Here are the 18 questions developed by Neil and readers of his site:...
  • Do the right thing - In a post entitled THE Framing and Thrashing of James Yee" Andrew Sullivan makes a good observation: You might not have noticed because the story was buried in most newspapers, unlike the original charges. A simple rule for newspapers. Do...
  • I feel pretty. Oh. So. Pretty. And fresh. - Transgender Singer to Do Menstrual Pad Ads "UFT, however, explained that the sanitary pads are a cutting-edge product that not only gives women that spring-fresh feeling, but also prevents menstrual cramps. Hearing this, the singer eventually accepted the offer." --...
  • Is A9 a K9? - A9 is the new IT in the blogging world. If you haven't heard of A9 yet you've had your head buried in your taxes. It is a search engine/site review service/diary toolbar/website put together by Amazon. Just go look. Make...
  • --- Title Not Realized by Deadline -- - Next came the Super Bowl, and the flap over Janet Jackson’s exposed breast. “We got—how many?—five hundred dead in Iraq, and several thousand more wounded, and they worried about a titty. A titty! What kind of sorry-ass nation is this?”...
  • Bruschetta Brouhaha or the Little War - This is another entry that is probably better suited over at languagehat, but my darling wife and I have this discussion often. If a word is adopted by the speakers of another language, should they keep the pronunciation? (This arose...
  • American Expressway - Just doing my part to help the reputation of the law industry. Check out the 13 year-old joke that led to a cease-and-desist letter. It didn't get the response they sought. 'Cause Brad Templeton don't play that (another 13 year-old...
  • The Teacher - If you read this and don't shed tears of sadness and joy...damn, I am sorry....
  • That shit is just not funny. - Everyone who reads this blog knows I have an obvious appreciation for Joey deVilla over at The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century. Over and over again he's pointed me to something interesting, thought provoking, humorous or all...
  • Drop Down and Give Me 134 - Made a few changes today: (1) Updated my personal page. (2) Changed my Share Your OPML file. Previously I included everything from blogs to special new feeds. Now I only include blogs. This means I fell off the list of...
  • LISNews Top Web Sites For Librarians - File this in the "Sure, I married her, but that doesn't mean she hasn't built a great website resource" department. Add the subcategory: "I know how much work she goes through finding the best scitech info for librarians." From LisNews.com:...
  • This headline isn't silly - This headline is silly: "US now outraged by a naked man!" Not true. The vast majority of the US enjoys a naked man every now and then. But the point of the story is that Barnes and Noble has refused...
  • It feels good AND it's good for you! - A study concludes that frequent ejaculation may prevent a type of cancer. "Giles notes that neither study examines ejaculation during the teenage years - which may be a crucial factor. But he says: "Although much more research remains to be...
  • Buy These Bags - | Thanks to BoingBoing I discovered a company I think should be rewarded: Tom Bihn, a manufacturer of computer bags. The (slightly cropped) image above is from Skeptomai. It seems he purchased a bag from Tom Bihn and took...
  • Free Culture - You've probably heard of Lawrence Lessig. He is the founder of the Stanford Center for Internet and Society. He was one of the inaugural recipients of the Scientific American 50 Award for his work on copyright law: "Argued against interpretations...
