About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

The Mess in Louisiana/Mississippi...

Don't you wish we could know what the real story is down there? You see all these poor people begging for help. Starving, flooding, dying, looting, fires. Then you have the "officials" saying what a magnificent job they're doing. What the Hell is going on?

You know, Congress re-convened early, on a Sunday(!), to pass some kind of legislation on Terry Schiavo. Yet only yesterday did they get around to showing up to appropriate money for this disaster.

Not our finest hour.
