Yesterday I ran errands after blogging, and last night was chilly enough that I had to put a blanket on my bed.  I thoroughly enjoyed feeling warm without sweating.  I’m current with replies, and tomorrow appears routine.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today’s took me 4:14 (average 4:56).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From MoveOn: One Simple Graphic About Jobs That Will Make You Very Angry


Nevertheless, Republicans are hard at work on their jobs program: moving OUR jobs overseas.

From NY Times: Mitt Romney entered the final months of the presidential campaign with a cash balance of just $35 million, racing to find new large donors and rally low-dollar contributors in August even while he raised tens of millions of dollars for the Republican Party.

Lord Willard? Short of money?!!? What poetic justice!

From YouTube: Sarah Silverman | Election 2012 – Voter Fraud

Warning: do not play in places or in front of people if extreme profanity is inappropriate.

She could have been more delicate, but not more hilarious or more accurate!

  1. 3:43  Chew on that!

  2. Once Sarah brought out the ammo – she had me sold!! The only thing I've agreed with Mayor Bloomberg is that he has taken on the NRA (he can afford it, and we are on the "more civilized" side of the country)!

  3. Puzzle — The damn thing wouldn't load no matter what I tried!  I suspect there is a problem at the site.  I'll try again later.
    MoveOn — Hard to believe it has been a year since the AJA was proposed and shot down by the obstructionist Republican/Teabaggers.  There is an old saying "Next year in Jerusalem!".  To paraphrase that, "This year in Washington!" — for Democrats of course.  All Republican/Teabaggers can walk their planks and sink into the ocean of unemployment.
    NY Times — That's hilarious!  Just goes to show, money can't buy everything!
    YouTube — Sarah Silverman is hilarious and spot on.  I've seen her before, and well . . . I guess I'm a fan.
    Cartoon — I wonder if truth in reporting was as big an issue then as it is today?  I somehow think the news information was more reliable in 1784.

      I know!

      Me too!  That didn't take long at all!

      I can't speak to then, but the 'yellow journalism' 100 years later was bogus even by today's standards.


  4. Funny that Rmoney has spent more time raising money than campaigning and is still running out of money. Maybe it's because his campaign paid the top workers very large bonuses recently. What do you think?
    Bless Sarah Silverman! And her Nana, too.
    Sadly newspapers are losing ground to the inter-webs. I still need my daily newspaper in my hands every day.
