As I mentioned yesterday, Mertie interviewed for a job in Vancouver Washington. We made a mad dash trip across state for an interview last weekend. Eight-hundred miles roundtrip through snow, sleet and rain. Today she got and took the job offer. She starts on March 16. Anyone want to guess how we'll sell a house, move and yahdeedah all in about two weeks? Don't ask me. I'm only along for a ride in the tornado.


More corruption. The following is from the desks of the Washington Post:

A senior Justice Department official who recently resigned her post bought a nearly $1 million vacation home with a lobbyist for ConocoPhillips months before approving consent decrees that would give the oil company more time to pay millions of dollars in fines and meet pollution-cleanup rules at some of its refineries.

Sue Ellen Wooldridge, former assistant attorney general in charge of environment and natural resources, bought a $980,000 home on Kiawah Island, S.C., last March with ConocoPhillips lobbyist Don R. Duncan. A third owner of the house is J. Steven Griles, a former deputy interior secretary, who has been informed he is a target in the federal investigation of Jack Abramoff's lobbying activities.


"Raising your children under Americanism or any other principles other than true Christianity is child abuse."

"You do not have the right to be wrong, regardless of what any man-made or demonic charter says." [The demonic charter he refers to is our Constitution]

"Democracy originated in the mind of a rational being who has the deepest hatred for God." [He means Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington—all those Satanic beings.]

"Do you realize that the only thing that gives democracy existence is sin? The absence of democracy is perfect obedience to god."

"The best way to insure the earth is never over populated is for sensible and righteous governments to clear [read "to kill" for "to clear"] all forms of atheism and heresy." —Robert T. Lee (Society for the Practical Establishment of the Ten Commandments)

The other day I was watching a report about the new interactive game thing called, “Wii”, and it emphasized the fact that you’ve got to get physically active to play it’s games. In fact, watching that report, I got to thinking. It showed people standing up in their living rooms, swinging their arms around, playing this strange game with their TV sets. And I could see they were really onto something. But why not go further with it? Maybe they could take that interactive game outside the living room. You could have people standing on opposite sides of some sort of barrier and have them competing against each other rather than against the TV. They could maybe have these paddles of some sort and they could hit something back and forth between them. Maybe they’d have lines marking off some sort of playing field. It would be really interactive, and you’d still have to swing your arms and move about. Maybe they’d give it a name, like “hitting back and forth together” or “bounce ball with hitting things”. I’m not sure what they’d call it, but this Wii game certainly suggests something to me, some outdoor game that would allow people to actually be in control of the playing objects rather than just having an electronic follow along. Whadayathink? Hunh? What could we call the game? Would youngsters get behind it? Would they actually get up off their behinds and go outside and play this strange game rather than stand in the living or game room to play it?
