Quick Update:  Arlen Spector announces switch to Dems.

There’s a shocker.  It won’t make a change in how the votes play out because the slimebag has been voting like a flaming libtard for years.


Well, the Acupuncture Chronicles are a thing of the past.

In the face of unrelenting pain, now we move into the Epidural Chronicles.

The pain specialist (new guy) and his nurse practitioner are some of the most up-front straight-shooters I’ve run into yet.  They think they can help me, one way or another.

They’re going to do a run of three cervical epidurals.  Let’s hope these work because the following options are not so rosy – fusing vertebrae.


A question for those who stumble by…

Mexico has the highest number of deaths from Swine Flu.

Two questions:

  1. How many deaths are in Mexico City itself.
  2. How much can Mexico City’s worse-than-the-rest-of-the-world-except-Beijing air quality have a part to play in this

I hope the Palm Beach Post folks can forgive me but this guy is a hero and it has to be pointed out.  My condolences to his girlfriend.

Man, 70, drowns saving two boys in rip current

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Sunday, April 26, 2009

POMPANO BEACH — A 70-year-old man drowned in the ocean Saturday while rescuing two young boys who got caught in a rip current and rough surf off Pompano Beach, officials said.

Charles Schulze carried the two boys, ages 9 and 12, almost to shore in the 1200 block of South Ocean Boulevard.

At that point, onlookers jumped into the water, brought the boys onto the sand and checked them over to make sure they were all right.

The boys were fine. But when the beachgoers looked back at the water, they found Schulze floating face-down, Pompano Beach Fire Rescue spokeswoman Sandra King said.

Another man jumped into the water and pulled Schulze to shore. But despite the efforts of some beachgoers who performed CPR, the boys’ rescuer was pronounced dead a short time later at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale.

Schulze lived in Pompano Beach and Washington, D.C., according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

His girlfriend witnessed the entire incident, King said.

“He’s a hero,” King said. “He saved the lives of these two boys.”

Is it entirely too much to ask of reporters that since the English language is their business and art, they ought to spell correctly and use proper grammar?

“It’s our responsibility to educate people on what they’re risks are and to encourage them to try to take measures to prevent the spread of the disease,” he said. “Certainly people should stay away from people who are know to be ill, practice good hand hygene, as well as good cough and sneeze etiquette.”

Yep, yesterday was a day with Le Porcupine… So, after so many weeks, a new addition to the page.


She’s honest, and that counts for a lot, even if she is a limpid milquetoast.  Pleas for Nannies…


Here is an idea that is so clever and disgusting that I HAD to link the guy’s site.  Go visit Nik’s site.  Wonderful site, some stuff may be NSF or un-kid-friendly, but use your best judgement.

BriefSafe on mmoabc.com

The problem with most safes is that experienced burglers know how to crack them. “Brief Safe” offers the next best thing which is basically stained underwear that securely stores valuables in a 4″ x 10″ secret compartment with velcro closure. Available now for $9 from Shomer


Next, I find over at “This Goes to 11” from a post about a militant FemiNazi who is militantly pro-choice to the point where she is critical of not killing your Down’s Syndrome child. Get that?

I’m pasting the F-Nazi’s link here but I’m not linking it because frankly I don’t want her to splash her frothy foamy saliva all over my site.   She the individual, personified, who I did the “so you’re a feminist…” graphic about – You can only fight that kind of self-absorption with mockery.


But the important thing (other than that she’s a sworn right-to-kill-your-child raver) is that the Feminazi is critical of Sarah Palin, who I actually wish had run for the PRESIDENTIAL position.  Beats anything else that the Republican party was graced with this cycle.  Complaints are that Palin is less experienced than Obama, but here’s the real point:   I know what she stands for but all I can tell is that Obama is about rainbows, change, healing, and unity.  NONE of those is a position!  They are feel-good words that tell me not a damn thing.

Preston’s closing remark over at Six Meat Buffet – it is exactly right:

While I’d prefer a PALIN/McCain ticket, this will have to do.


Oh drats, now I’m non-family friendly.  A site that reads your blog and assigns you a rating.
