Emily's Story

Tonight I realized that a lot of the reason people visit this blog anymore is for information about Emily. This blog has become the focal point of Emily's story. Recently I have begun to post on some topics of interest to me and I might do some more of that in the future, but this type of activity makes it harder for people to find out what they really want to know about and that is Emily.

To make things easier I have tagged all of the posts about Emily and they can all be viewed as a group. As I post anything new about Emily or that relates to her I will add the tag. If you have linked to this blog for Emily's story please update your link to her collection of posts, that way you don't have to wade through my incoherent ramblings on politics or some other stupid subject.

This was a tough task for me. It has been a long time since I have looked at all of the stuff about Emily and it really hurts...but it also make me very proud that I am her father. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her and miss her.

Save the Mexican Children!

George Will brilliantly dismantles the administration and points out their many failings. Things are going to get very bad and the blame Bush mantra is going to get VERY old.

The 'Blame America First' crowd strikes again. Hmm, guns are illegal in Mexico and now they have a gun problem, drugs are illegal in the US and we have a drug problem. See a trend? The
answer that these kooks will come up with will be to make guns illegal in the US. Perhaps they should legalize drugs...but seriously isn't it time to rethink this entire issue?

I have yet to hear any credible stories that indicates that Americans are significantly involved in any weapons smuggling into Mexico. The one case I have heard of involved a Cave Creek AZ gun dealer that was charged with selling guns to a Mexican gang member who was using bogus documentation. This case has been dropped. It seems like the people who are breaking the laws in the US concerning guns are the same people in Mexico murdering and smuggling drugs and people into the US. Sounds like a mostly Mexican problem to me. Stand by for the cries of 'Save the Mexican Children!'

AIG is totally screwed and the taxpayers will have to pay even more to clean up this mess. How is a company that is too big to fail going to survive when all the experienced managers leave...and they will. After the way these people have been treated who would want to work for them? Not me. This company is done and it should have been allowed to fail a year ago. Keep an eye out for the part about working for a $1 annual salary, turns out this guy's bonus was his pay!

Album Meme

I got this idea from a friend. I thought I would try it out.

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”or click The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to "Random quotations"or click The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”or click Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together.

Kind of a neat creative exercise.
