I want 5 million in unmarked bills for that other "p"

At Front Page in Arlington, there are newspapers all over the walls. When you stand there waiting for your friends to arrive you tend to read them. One is the front page (So that is why the bar is called that! :) of the Lindbergh baby kidnapping. Well, kidnaping. That headline has bugged the hell out of me forever. I cannot believe that they would misspell on the front page of a newspaper.
Then, a few days ago, because the Adam Walsh law was passed, I was reading some old clippings about his kidnapping. The headline there was "Six year-old was kidnaped, police believe".
Even Time magazine had an article titled "Kidnaping at the Border." Is it just me, or are you guys pronouncing it kid-nape-ing, too?
I typed "kipnaped" into Microsoft Word and it instantly corrected it to say "kidnapped". Unsatisfied, I looked it up on www.dictionary.com and it turns out that both are correct. Just thought I would pass it on in case you find yourself in Front Page looking at that damn article. Turns out I fumed about "some idiot" for nothing. Oops.

Would I be the first to be kicked out? If so.. I get to be the leader!

During a phone conversation with Jen, I came up with a solution to the immigration problem. Give people a five year amnesty in the States. At the end of five years, they would have to present themselves before a committee that decides whether this person has made a positive addition to the American society or not. If not, they don't get to stay.
Wishful thinking has me desiring to send Americans out on the basis of the same merits. Member of a gang? Out you go. Mel Gibson? Back to Australia with you. Speaking of Australia... Perhaps there is another island we could have to send undesirables to. They could create their own government and in a few years, we'd all be clamoring to go there and speak like they do.
Just a thought on a Monday morning. More coffee, please!
