On 9/11/2001, al Qaida killed almost 3,000 of my fellow countrymen for absolutely no good reason.
In response, and over the past 5 years, George Bush made sure that 4,000 MORE of my countrymen were killed for no good reason. That'll teach 'em!!!

Isn't it illegal to make decisions about insurance coverage based on geography??
Mortgage insurers, whose backing is required for borrowers who can't afford the traditional 20 percent down payment on a home, have already flagged nearly a quarter of the nation's ZIP codes where they refuse to insure some home loans.

I just read an article that confused me. Kraft and Sara Lee are worried about shrinking profits due to the rising cost of their inputs, namely beef and pork. This is, of course, exactly the opposite of what's happening with the oil-refining industry. The cost of oil has increased by a factor of six over the past several years, yet Exxon and the rest experience record profits. Someone please explain this to me.

Hard to believe (no it isn't), but Elizabeth Hasselbeck really did intimate that it must have been because Mrs. Spitzer didn't let her husband get his freak on often enough that the ex-guv was forced to visit hookers.
The really sad thing is that there are about 1,000,000 Elizabeth Hasselbeck clones running around the world. It's true. I've met them. And I kept count.

Why are the wives always trotted out to "stand by their man" whenever some random public official decides to come clean about cheating, or visiting prostitutes, or whatever lurid thing they're meant to have done? Why do they stand for it? How does it make them look anything but ridiculous to be seen on a stage while their husband details exactly how much of a scumbag he is?
All I'm saying is if I'm Mrs. Spitzer, I tell my husband that if he expects me to be photographed at press conferences, and appear in front page photos and publicly go down with the ship, he's living in a dreamworld.

I've been MIA for awhile now. Well, I'm working a full time job, going to class in the evening for my MBA at Kellogg, and my wife is currently pregnant with twins, which will be our 2nd and 3rd children. So there's not a lot of time for frivolous things like writing on blogs no one reads. Maybe I'll try to connect this thing with Facebook or something and that will inspire me to write more often.
