“it’s not that I’m lazy, it’s that I just don’t care.”
Stuff about which I don’t feel like blogging in detail.
Given he has no chance to carry Alabama, but I wonder if a sound rejection of this appeal might help his overall chances in Alabama:
The Alabama Democratic Conference heard U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.’s appeal for their endorsement of U.S. Sen. Barack Obama in the state’s presidential primary.
You mean the folks who have to pay civil jury awards think those awards are excessive and wasteful? Geez, next thing you know capital defendants will be complaining about the death penalty.
When I was in college, which was not that long ago, I would be shocked if a proffesor so much as understood e-mail, never mind actually responding to a message. Now look at how good these high school kids have it today:
It was 5:30 the evening before her geometry test, and Mary Kathryn Sawyer was stumped, but by 9 p.m. she and her teacher had figured out the problem.
It wasn’t a late-night study session that helped the Oak Mountain High School student prepare for the test, but an online blog.
Sawyer’s teacher, Suzanne Culbreth, has been using a blog, or online journal, to post daily lesson plans and hints for tests. The blog allows students to post comments and questions and receive quick answers from their teacher even after school is out.
“It’s really great because if Mary Kathryn has a question on a problem, then maybe someone else does too,” Culbreth said. “This way the explanation is out there for everyone to see. I call it a virtual study session.”
I have a money saving suggestion for the papers. Instead of taking the time to research and report about the Dome or Natalee Holloway, just run the same story every two weeks or so, but with new dates and deadlines. Really, save yourselves some effort and just make out a template saying something like “Aruban officials conducted new searches on —. They questioned Joran van der Sloot and the Kaloes. They dug up some beaches. The officials learned nothing.”
On the subject of wasted resources, IMHO, Alabama is really wasting our natural resources by not making more land available for outdoor uses. These folks are whining about not having enough horse trails in the state. And Oak Mountain, for instance, can almost feel like the Galleria on a nice weekend. So the demand is there. We just need some leadership.
And finally, I saw this today, and it made me laugh:
