Forgetful Jones had Alzheimers.

I'm typically one who gets a little peeved at people who pine nostalgic and dismissively say that back in the day kids were freer. As in, free to eat lead paint and to stick their tiny hands in gears of the loom. Well, perhaps that's overstated, but I hope you get the point. Maybe lawn darts weren't such a good idea.

Well, perhaps it's all come too far now. Apparently, old skool sesame street is a little too risque for today's preschool set. I mean, Oscar isn't the same if he isn't the asshole curmudgeon who lives in a fucking trash can.

I went to the "Thank You" party put on by Hizzoner yesterday evening on my way to the gym. It appeared to be a event that was supposed to get locals to come downtown after work to get some free food. What it turned out to be was a photo opportunity for said pol and free food for confused tourists and homeless people who had wandered over from Duncan Plaza.

What struck me was that as I walked down the sidewalk, I saw hizzoner himself. And instead of feeling any amount of thrill that, hey, there's the mayor, or hey, there's a famous person. All I felt was utter contempt. I actually wanted to go smack that race-bating, opportunist, corrupt, walking embarassment in the back of his shiny head. I guess what's surprising is that I've always been one to revere political institutions. Feeling this level of distrust for the government is something new. Perhaps I should move to Idaho.

Interesting Road Home Article

From an attorney-blogger, his experiences with the Road Homeless. Oddly familiar.

Quote of the week:

Depending on the government in Louisiana to help you is like Charlie Brown thinking that Lucy is going to let him kick the football.

Fight, Fight, Fight

The floors continue toward their renovation. I think the stain goes on today.

Here's a link to the alumni web page of my dear old high school. It's sad to see that what was in pretty bad shape 10 years ago, has gotten progressively worse. Mind you, this is the "flagship" school of East Baton Rouge Parish, and has historically been one of the highest performing schools in the state.

I am so sick of seeing this guy EVERYWHERE.

Broadmoor neighbor's blog entry from today.

Cuttin' and pastin'

A quick update. The floors have been started, and we picked a stain last night. I'm really excited because I think the floors are going to look fantastic. The floor guy, who is REALLY into wood floors, is pretty impressed with the state of our floor after the flood. I'll post pictures of it as soon as it's ready.

I haven't had much time at home to upload pictures from the trip, but I promise I will still do so. In the meantime....
