Osama "Camel Humper" Bin Laden used to do the same thing, and you know how popular he is with maggots, flies, and various bacteria these days, so another coward who likes to threaten people while wearing a Batman costume just isn't going to strike the fear in the way that he probably wants.Tanya of Redsugar Muse aptly names him Shazzam the Shitheel.I'm waaaay...

The Internet is a powerful force in today's world. Just as powerful is the emergence of web logs or blogs. Blogs can range from a personal diary to a focused discussion on a narrow topic. Because blogs are simple to set up and use, they have become quite prolific. Eventually, there will be as many blogs on the Internet as there are Starbucks cafés.Success in the blogosphere is measured by the number of unique visitors. These visits, sometimes called 'hits', usually correspond to the quality of...

Well, it's always been kind of understood that I'm somewhat of a conservative, but after the debates last night, it's now out in the open at work that I am voting Bush. My boss, my boss' boss, and most of the people around me (minus 2 or so) are diehard Democrats bordering on the Church of Michael Moore members. The hostility is now open.Luckily, I just had a 45 minute, heated, but rather good conversation with the director since he's the major Bush hater. Claims Bush is running the economy...
