I saw on one of the morning shows on Foxnews that they have partnered with a web-site called The Palestra College Network. The assumption of Foxnews being “fair and balanced” this site will give a “fair and balanced” to the college kids. View the video from the Palestran politics page.
Today is celebrated with fun-making and masquerading. It is summed up in the phrase “trick or treat.” Tomorrow is Hallowmas for people of my faith-tradition where we honor our canonized saints of whom are role models for us to follow and lead a better life. I am not writing this about halloween, neither secular nor [...]
Stopped by Starbucks for a cup of tea. The cup had a quote from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.” Ignore the fact that if a conservative had said that, every liberal would be up in arms about the intolerance of the [...]
After two years of media’ complaint and Democrats’ political expediency of Bush’s failure to defend Louisiana, that State’s Governor Blanco opted not to run for re-election. CNN claims she was widely blamed for the state’s slow response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. If one was watching closely to the news since Katrina and [...]
This is the TOWN HALL Administrator who was hauled out of a town-painting-red party last night into to be told our house Dentist and fellow poster here, N.D. Ted couldn’t get into here in order to post his musings. Ted, I got in with the user-name and password — stop downing the red wine between [...]
The fires are still burning in the eastern part of the county. But there are hazy blue skies here in the Northwest corner for the first time since Monday. There is ash everywhere, our tile roof is speckled gray. The schools are still closed but most people are back at work. Disasters come, disasters go. This [...]
We spoke to our next door neighbor. He said that a fire truck when through our neighborhood telling people to leave. There was no sign of our neighborhood being on the evac or return lists. So we called the local sheriff’s office and they said our neighborhood was not evacuated in fact no one in [...]
The local evac centers had asked for donations of toiletries and bedding so I went through my linen closet yesterday digging out what I could find to give. In the bottom of the closet I found some hand towels we had never used. They were a wedding present but never matched our decor so they [...]
Sheryl Gay Stolberg’s headline he New York Times‘ With Katrina Fresh, Bush Moves Briskly. She tells that the President moves fast when the Californian Governor called early in the morning Tuesday. The tone of the piece is that the White House is ‘gun-shy’ after ‘their mistakes in the Katrina disaster. We don’t read about the [...]
The National news folks are “surprised” at how well things are going in the Qualcom evacuation center. They were expecting (hoping) to find New Orleans levels of chaos. Well I am not a bit surprised. This city knows how to take care of itself and its own. So many donations showed up at the major [...]
Our pocket of blue sky is gone. We woke up to a fog of smoke and ash covering everything outside. We are still not in the path of any of the fires, but breathing is not fun. We are heading North and West to coastal OC. I don’t know if I will have internet access [...]
Just dropped by National Review online and none of them are writing about the fires. That is unreal to me. There is nothing to do here but watch coverage of the fire and track the evacuation zones. All public schools are closed, Legoland and Sea World are closed. People are told not to go to [...]
It’s silly really. We are not in any danger where we are. But I am still afraid to go to sleep. I am not even sure I could right now. Keep San Diego in your prayers please. See you tomorrow.
We are watching live coverage of the firefighters setting a fire break. They are driving bulldozers to direct the fire to areas of no fuel. I am awed by their courage, they are literally inches from an out of control fire attempting to bend it to their will., using the bulldozers to direct the direction [...]
The San Marcos fire is 100% contained, woo hoo FireFighters! The Fallbrook fire is 0% contained, go FireFighters! Encinitas is on standby for evacuations. We still have blue skies all around us but the clouds of smoke are getting closer. Don’t worry about the Princess guys we are ready to evacuate if we have to, [...]
Finally, the GOP presidential candidates are getting hot if the debates in last night on Foxnews broadcast proves anything. N.D.
