Thanks to all of you for your comments regarding the passing of DogGeeding and for bearing with me for not posting for a week. I know you fellow pet-lovers understand, and for you non-pet-lovers, I appreciate your patience.
I had DogGeeding cremated and his remains returned to me. What I didn’t expect to be included was a cast made of his paw with his name engraved. It was a nice touch and would make a good Christmas ornament.
Lots of snow in DFW yesterday. It got me to thinking, and we are talking about a lot of if’s, but if the Cowboys still played in Texas Stadium and if they made the playoffs and hosted a game yesterday, it would have been fun to watch with all the snow.
The shooting in Arizona is an extremely sad event, but I’ll be honest, with all the hostility with the town halls a while back, I’m surprised it hasn’t happened earlier and/or more.
As sad as it is for Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords injuries and the death of the federal judge, it’s sad that innocent bystanders who lost their life will never be noticed by the public, so here’s a link about them.
Sarah Palin has taken a lot of heat over the weekend for using crosshairs in the previous election to target congressional districts, Rep Giffords being one of them. I understand her tough talk (don’t retreat, reload) strategy and the use of ‘military talk’ during campaigns, but in my opinion, especially with the kind of adversity displayed in the town halls and all, that may have not been a prudent decision. It’s interesting how a Palin aid had the image removed from her website over the weekend and then state that the images weren’t crosshairs but surveyor points (source) when Palin herself called them crosshairs. I certainly don’t think Palin is responsible for the shooting, but with her kind of influence, she should be cautious of how others may perceive her message.
Michael Moore makes an interesting tweet: If a Detroit Muslim put a map on the web w/crosshairs on 20 pols, then 1 of them got shot, where would he b sitting right now? Just asking.
Lost in the news because of the shooting in Arizona are photos of Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack having her, well, it may be too explicit to type for this blog. But here’s an article about the photo in question.
For some reason Bud Kennedy of the Star Telegram has started to follow me on Twitter. As a matter of fact, more people have started to follow me on Twitter, but I haven’t actually updated that thing lately.
