Senater Larry Craig of Idaho is probably resigning soon. I never understood all this meet in bathrooms stuff. If you are a gay man and want to meet another gay man for sex, go to a gay bar. What is it with public bathrooms that make things so much better? I can't even find a heterosexual analogy for this. Not that all gay men do this, but obviously enough do. I mean, apparently there is even a protocol to follow. Sheesh.

Here in Indiana, the state is losing some federal funds because they didn't meet their target of getting enough people off welfare by getting them into jobs. On the surface, losing the funds makes sense. If a state isn't doing enough with the funds they are given, why give them more funds to do nothing? However, if the Fed REALLY wants Indiana to increase the welfare to work numbers, is cutting funding going to that really going to accomplish that? To me, that is like telling your child that he isn't allowed to do as much homework this week, because he failed to do enough last week. For crying out loud, take some other funds from Indiana, not the thing you want it to improve in. Don't let your kid watch TV instead of more homework negligence.

Today is the day that Princess Diana will be memorialized in observance of the tenth anniversary of her death. I hope this thing doesn't drag out for days or weeks. I guess I am a hypocrite because I thought the Elvis thing was perfectly fine. However, what can you do with Diana? At least with Elvis, you can watch movies and hear music. All you can do about Diana is watch news file footage and talk about her. However, if you want to hear music regarding Diana, I guess you can listen to Elton John's tired version of "Candle in the Wind". I, on the other hand, would rather hear Smalltown Poet's "Prophet, Priest, and King". It has one verse dedicated to the royal wedding (kind of an older song). It is a well-written, catchy song. Please check it out here. It is a pretty entertaining and fun video. The lyrics can be found in my appendix blog here.

Finally, gas just jumped 20 to 30 cents a gallon this morning for the holiday weekend supply and demand, you know. Don't you just love capitalism? The economy of greed makes me become closer and closer to becoming a socialist. Ooh, perish the thought! There are people who actually think that capitalism is the economy system ordained by God. However, Jesus seemed to run his gang by the way of socialism.
USA! USA! USA!
What a country!
