Silly Stuff.

First, I don't know how many of you have heard the latest thing about google, but if you can click on or otherwise access the link http://www.google.com/tisp/ you will find that google offers, for free, a beta version of their new FREE I say again Broadband access service.

I got the link from Kim Komando, clicked on it and giggled myself silly. This is a broad band link that is accessible by fiber optic line (furnished by Google) through your toilet connecting with your city sewer. (Septic tank users like me may not apply). The only really irritating thing about it, other than my lack of eligibility is that in their explanation, they use up most of the good puns about it. "Now the statement that there is a lot of crap on the internet can be factually verified" and stuff like that. They inform you that this is a beta version because when things go wrong in the sewer, they can go "really" wrong.

I am filled with imaginary web pages appearing on the toilet paper, with the possibility of urinating directly on my least favorite web page (I will not identify it other than to verify that it is a political page.) with my modem leaking all over the floor, or??????????????

Other silly stuff. Have you read that "education experts" doubt the truth of the third grade mafia in Georgia that set out to attack their teacher, lock her in handcuffs and abuse her with a broken steak knife (I know that this is scary, and if true shows precocious gangsters, and if the education experts are right, the teacher was in no danger.) I must write about the Pearl Harbor Club made up of students from my school, who met in the field across from my elementary school, dug an amazing bunch of tunnels in the vacant lot, camouflaged them, then used them to play "You show me yours and I'll show you mine". It really happened, IN 1942. Kids can be amazing, and experts don't know everything. I know, I used to be one. (Kid and Expert)

One of the anchors for Air America (I can't remember the name, I only listened to Air America once, and was bored by Al Franken with wit that approached his ultimate humor, (his book title something like RUSH LIMBAUGH IS A BIG FAT MORON ). Any way this lady anchor stood up at a political fund raiser sponsored by Air America to raise money for the Democratic Party, and referred to Hilary Clinton as a F*****ing Whore. She was equally impolitic about Geraldine Ferraro, but I can't remember the label. I understand that she was suspended by Air America, which may or may not be noticed by any living people.
(I am not going to get back into political posting, but this struck me as SO silly I had to mention it.)

Not so silly, especially if it goes national, but independent truckers going in an out of the Savannah Port are parking their rigs because they can't pay expenses with diesel at over $4.00 a gallon, and the companies paying 90 cents a mile for freight. I wrote a while ago about unintended consequences and the variety of consequences unintended and intended if this goes national are mind boggling. You get bothered about four and five dollar milk, wait till the prices on everything imported or shipped by truck double and triple. (Frankly I am in sympathy with the truckers, but I have no solutions. )
