Open Vacation with Ted

I am going to spend my vacation with Ted.

In the past I have had the luxury of vacationing by visiting with a group of very significant people. Artists, Theologians, Psychologists, Intellectuals, Philosophers, and Social Activists comprise a very challenging and stimulating non-work experience. Unfortunately this vacation my commitments locally prevent me from travel.

So I am staying home to spend time with Ted. I am going to let Ted challenge and stimulate me.

Here, let me introduce you to Ted.

Open Targets





Who, then, should be targeted by Chinese netizens looking to vent their anger and frustration over the huge loss of human life? May I recommend the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas:






Westboro Baptist Church prays for more earthquakes in China.

Open "Hail Mary"

Observation: Hillary Clinton cannot leave the race when there is even the remotest chance she could become the "default" nominee of the Democrat party.

If Hillary dropped out now _and_ Barack Obama just happened to be "hit by a bus" who would be the party's candidate of choice? I think Michelle would make a great first woman president. (Much to Hillary's chagrin!)

Hillary is making the "Hail Mary" play for the Democratic nomination. One can only assume that she is either hoping Obama commits some sort of political suicide _or_ succumbs to some tragic accident.

Hillary has to call this last disparate play. She knows that if she doesn't acquire the nomination, by hook or by crook, then her power career will be over. Certainly she will be re-elected to represent the state of New York but her power will slip away when everyone she meets remembers her as a loser. And a poor loser at that.

Open Conundrum

<raspyandyrooneyvoice>Dija'eva notice that just as work-responsibilities rise personal interest activities increase and at the same time you end up fighting a cold?</raspyvoice>

The work thing is looking more and more like Programmer-WebMaster-DatabaseAdministrator (PWMDBA). That is in addition to our regularly scheduled Manager of Information Systems (MIS) responsibilities. Then there is Assistant Director (AD) for Cell - a production for the International Mystery Writers Festival (IMWF).

Last but not least, 7 full days fighting the rhino sitting on my nose - I fully expect at least a couple more too.

Once the stormy seas of this season settle then I will offer my "Why Linux?" in response to Shawn Power]s recent Linux Journal article. I even have some intentions of following up Winston Rand's "Why I Blog" observations with some of my own sterling insights - if I could just focus through this Sudafed induced haze.
