This talks about the idea of a minor's accountability for crime, etc.....

Why are we as a society so willing to treat children like adults?

Of course, I'll just pretent the one doing the honoring is actually Al Gore.

I had hoped to take a class this winter at the U.....and I was hoping that my employer would be willing to reimburse the cost for me. They will-and they support my continued education but they will only cover classes that will directly impact my job. Which means they will cover computer classes. Undergrad computer sci classes. What is my Bachelor's already in?

You guessed it. Computer Science.

This has been my worst week in years.

Thanks for caring!
Now we know what, exactly, to call my job
Tonight, I'm going to see this band-20 Miles
So I've had another interesting weekend:
1) Friday night I went Christmas shopping. I've got presents for most of the girls I know.
2) Saturday, I went and saw "Karl Denson's Tiny Universe" at First Avenue. On a related note, guess who now has a staff pass to any event there....yup, it's me.
3) Sunday, I went and had dinner with the family. Then I went to a "Get out the Vote" type meeting (the group's name is "The League of Pissed-Off Voters").
4) I got hit in my car, and it was totaled.

Yesterday, I got rid of my old car and got a new for-me car. It's the same year and model as the old one(a '90 Buick Lesabre), but this one is stop-sign red and only has 92,000 miles on it. It's got some of the same problems the old one used to have but fixing them should be easier the second time around.

Bill Shatner and his big giant head


Say what you will about William Shatner-so long as you also say to know him is to love him.

The early sound still rocks on | csmonitor.com


This story reminds me of the film "Standing in the Shadows of Motown." Great film...I hope they make something like that out of this yearly event.
who knew that Muammar Gaddafi's son was a pro soccer player?

I didn't. It turns out he's a doper though. That's too bad.

SJU Sports - GO JOHNNIES.COM


another article about Gagliardi.
St John's-Family values


To people who aren't familiar with my whole St. John's affiliation, this gives a pretty good overview. While I wasn't on the football team per se (as I was too busy with the radio station), I still feel a great deal of love and loyalty to the guys on the team. A sense of family.

I figured posting this, several days after the coach of St John's tied Eddie Robinson's all time wins record, would help people understand how I feel about this place.
