Your faithful correspondent in the news…

Apparently, I just can’t get along.

Today’s evidence includes me on Austin TV being mean to Ralph Nader (sorry, one cannot embed News8Austin’s video elsewhere, for some strange reason that I SURE WISH THEY’D FIGURE OUT).

Next is an audio podcast from the Houston Chronicle in which I (and CNN) don’t quite agree with Congressman Mike McCaul, and McCaul’s spokesman (and my old friend) Mike Rosen (go Bellaire! Westbury sux!) seems to disagree with me. Go figure.

    Admittedly, I am technology-challenged, but I clicked on the chron link and couldn’t find it. You may have been supplanted by the BENNIGANS ARE CLOSING ALL OVER story.

    As for Nader? I thought you were too kind, calling him a fringe candidate as opposed to a candidate for commitment in the nearest nuthouse, er, institution for the mentally impaired. The (roughly paraphrasing) “not enough support to even be a spoiler” was a nice touch, though.

    The podcast can be run by clicking the little sideways triangle at the left side of the podcast box. Welcome to 2002. 🙂

    Cactus, most people who come to this site come pre-plied.

    yeah well, about that…I hear it stopped working at some point late last night, both here and on the Chronicle site. So I dunno. Here’s my fair-and-balanced account: I said many many brilliant things, followed by Mike Rosen, who didn’t. Rosen might have a slightly different view so you might want to ask him.

    Pre-plied? What are you imPLYING? Pre-pie-eyed? Pre-plowed?

    All of the above?

    I’ve heard that plying can lead to plowing.

    Wow, I had no idea this site was read by so many…um…farmers.

    Truthseeker, for the reason that I’m tired of you and other McCaul employees spamming my site, and because your latest post is completely off-topic, I deleted your post. Start your own damn website, and have a great day (just have it somewhere else).

    Love and Kisses,
    The Management
