|C'mon, when am I going to die already?
Death has been on my mind quite a bit this year. Ringing in the New Year with a concert and more alcohol than I'm used to. Then staying drunk long enough, just a day or two, to totally f*&^&% up the ...
|Another voting block for Rick Santorum!
Yes! While it takes a while (one minute, fifty seconds) to get to the point, everyone knows that Santorum will be handily defeated by President Obama in 2012. (Did I say "handily?" My bad.) And save ...

|Dvar torah: Noah and the Ark
I've never written one of these before. I couldn't see just regurgitation quotes from others, to me, the weekly pershot should be something that starts me thinking. I hope I do that ...
