Ah Bugger

How is this okay?

The Westboro Baptist Church is at it again. Who joins these kinds of hate groups? The delightful band of morons will be protesting at the funeral of Ryan Clark, a 22 year old student killed in the Virginia Tech carnage, tomorrow in Georgia.

According to their news release, the 33 killed at VT were killed to atone for America's having persecuted the Westboro Baptist Church. Oh, here I thought some boy had lost his mind, but it was all for WBC.

These people are all certifiable. Freedom of speech is a great thing, but at what point does it simply become insanity?

Make like a tree and leave

I know I am a little late in sharing this, but I have been busy! Back off!
Monday was a frustrating travel day. One of the roads I take to work was closed and they gave no warning, so once I committed to the off ramp, I was trapped behind a police car, a massive line of traffic, and a broken tree. I managed to turn around and get to work sort of on time.
The homeward trip took a bit longer. An hour and a half longer, to be exact. It took me two hours to get home. I have to say that I concert I gave in my car with the help of my IPOD was impressive. You should have been there!
I figured the stoppage in traffic was due to another tree having been too weak to withstand the nagging of the wind, and I was right. I did not expect, however, to be treated to the sight of three fully uniformed Park Police officers breaking branches by hopping up and down on them and playing a game of tug of war. These men took this job so seriously, but I have to thank them for not being able to shed their little boy sides when it came to freeing us of the street infringing rudeness of a broken tree.
