Six degrees of XTC …


A challenge for my Republican Friends …

Do me a favor. Instead of just forwarding emails – some traced back to before the 2008 presidential election – railing on President Obama for
things easily debunked with research, how about you do the following:

1)    Think independently.

2)    Formulate a thought of your own.

3)    Tell me why you think Barack Obama has been a failure as President.

The Rules:

1)    You can’t just say things like “he’s a Muslim” because – well – that’s a lie.

2)    You can’t just say he wasn’t born in the United States because – well – most logical people know Hawaii is a one of the 50 states, ergo he’s a US citizen.

3)    Any other stupid stuff easily debunked via a modicum of research is off limits, too. 

If you need a little boost, check out this Jonathan Alder piece from Bloomberg 

Good luck. I sincerely look forward to your thoughts.

Just when you think you’ve heard it all …

You can’t make this stuff up.  I mean – good for her.  But, jeezaloo …


State angler finds Minnesota woman’s prosthetic leg

ALEXANDRIA, Minn. — A Minnesota woman who lost her prosthetic leg while swimming in a lake three years ago has been reunited with the lost limb thanks to a Wisconsin angler.

Beth Krohn was fishing last month on Lake Ida in Alexandria. She says her line kept snagging on something, and she thought, “I hope it’s not a dead body.”

A KSAX-TV report says her catch turned out to be the prosthetic leg that Pam Riley of Morris lost three years ago.

Krohn eventually tracked Riley down and returned the lost limb.

Krohn says she’s proud of the catch. She says it’s like going deer hunting and shooting the biggest buck of all.

Riley says she always wondered what someone would think if they saw a leg surfacing in a lake.
