In other news, BORING

      2 Comments on In other news, BORING

Dear Sacramento, Aren’t you sick of hearing this crap about the Sacramento Kings?  Since I moved to Sacramento in 2005 they have had one foot out the door.  Sorry, it was early 2006 when the “we’re going to Disneyland!” rumors started.  OK, not Disneyland proper, but Disneyland adjacent-ish, also known as Anaheim. Would someone tell the Mayor that enough is… Read more »

Batten down the hatches or just get an umbrella?

Apparently, it’s finally going to rain in Sacramento and the media is slightly panicking.. For the past three days I’ve been reading about flood warnings and something called an atmospheric river.  While I’m the first to evacuate when the authorities tell me to, I’m also skeptical of these warnings.  They are pretty widespread.  Do I need to do anything or… Read more »

My cousin said it best, “Well this is a little ridiculous. Who misplaces moon rocks?” Apparently, 11 other states can’t find their moon rocks… Read more »

Just Vote!

      No Comments on Just Vote!

Regardless of your party affiliation, you should vote on Tuesday.  In the not too distant past, it was a struggle for people to vote in our own country.  A mere 9 years before I was born, the Voting Rights Act was passed.  It appalls me to think of the violence people met with just by exercising their constitutional rights.  I… Read more »

Not Quite a Movie Review: Argo

      No Comments on Not Quite a Movie Review: Argo

Today I noticed a tweet by Wired that caught my eye: I had seen the trailers for this movie, but other than the fact that Ben Affleck was in it, I wasn’t really interested.  The government makes a fake movie to cover something up?  Sounds like Wag the Dog to me.  OK, they faked a war by using a movie… Read more »
