Well, the President and Rudy both got to climb on top of a pile of wreckage and play with the bullhorn. It made a great photo-op, so it was worth all of those people getting sick.

Seriously, I hope that all those cops and firemen that made a big deal out that small shrub will note how their elected government regards their welfare.

spelling nitpick of the day...

It may SOUND like respitory, but it's spelled resporitory.

cool propaganda in the pot article

(+)Such operations are turning up in greater numbers within state and national parks throughout California. Federal officials estimate the state produces half of all the marijuana seized on public lands nationwide.

Hey, I thought the first day of school for my kid was tomorrow, and had gone for what I thought was an early morning day-before tour of Lincoln, only to find out it was the first day - no, I wasn't investigating green things, somehow got the dates wrong.

But, yeah, we need more trees.

Dust from Ground Zero causes respiratory ailments? In other news, bears shit in the woods.

Damn bears, ruining our pot farms.
