Cliche-Ridden Washington Post Crap

This is the worst-written article I've read in a long time. It's crammed full of faux-cheeky journalist's humor. I realized this as soon as I saw the phrase "latte generation" and "whatever."

Peak Oil Fallout

I only just noticed this article in today's Sunday NYT about the peak oil theory.

And I only just noticed this response.

I'm about to go to bed and shan't write about this for several days. What do you guys think?

Where The Red Fern Grows

Shorty is hurt.

Shorty

He has a herniated vertebral disc. He kept waking me up last night, crying and nudging my hand as if he expected me to make it better. This morning, he could barely walk, so I took him to the vet.

Several x-rays (and $400+) later, he's splayed out on a cushion next to me, stoned on cortizone and something else.

Not only did the x-rays turn up a back problem, but the vet also found a piece of lead buckshot lodged in Shorty's abdomen. Apparently it happens to dogs from rural areas, and Shorty was rescued from a shelter in Floyd County, VA.

Poor guy.

Thank You, James Howard Kunstler.

I could feel a weight lifted off my shoulders as I read this.
