Thinking About Planting


It's about the time of year that Burpee and everybody else sends out their plant and seed catalogs, and people who garden or like to think about it sit around and dream through the dark cold days. Only they're not as cold as they used to be, are they?

Before ordering your plants, go look at this. The Arbor Day Foundation hardiness zone map. Chances are very good you're not in the one you think you are any more. Read more about Thinking About Planting

Ski roads cleared before roads with trapped families?

Sarah reports from an unknown location:

Priorities, people, priorities...

(Text) National Public Radio News is reporting that many stranded travelers on highways in Colorado -- except for the ones headed to ski resorts, to which the roads have already been cleared as a priority -- and homebound residents may have to wait days for roads to reopen.

Scientists: Humans continue to evolve today


I'm two days late celebrating what should be a national holiday: Evolution Day, December 20, 2005, when Judge John Jones ruled againt the creationist loons in Kitzmiller et al vs. Dover Area School District.

Presumably, evolution didn't stop, oh, 10,000 or 50,000 years ago, but continues its workings even unto the present day. Now scientists have some proof. The New Scienist: Read more about Scientists: Humans continue to evolve today

2007: A year of pandemonium


Sounds like the tumult of the current year is just a warm-up for next year's mayhem:

An assassination attempt will be made on Condoleezza Rice in 2007, predicts psychic Nikki in her look ahead to next year.

Ha Ha!


Just a little Nelson Munzt moment over this: "No tengo futuro. Titter, you got that right, hombre. Mainly because no one is interested in another member of the family that brought us choice quotes like this one. Idiocy and incompetence only go so far. Enjoy your retirement in Boca.

Messaging, Policy, and Wonking

So my perception of last night is this:

I write a post saying Harry Reid may have finally grown some nuts. Chris Bowers writes a post that I read as "Don't Say Mean Things about Harry Reid!" Then Atrios writes "Don't Say Mean Things About Chris Bowers!" Read more about Messaging, Policy, and Wonking

Culture is So Cool


I've got a guest in town, so light blogging for a couple of days. But I wanted to tell everyone to go to the National Galleries when you have the chance. To my shame, every time I came to DC before moving here, I was always too busy with protests and parties to take in any culture. Read more about Culture is So Cool

The Spirit of Strom Thurmond

Can't find a pic but I heard it from a caller on Big Ed Schultz' show. Apparently Bob Gates landed in Baghdad on this plane and came out the door under the words "Spirit of Strom Thurmond". Look, up in the sky, it's a geriatric racist!

Will the Democratic Congress fund Bush's "Surge"?

That is the only question that matters right now. Dennis Kucinich (yes I know he's too short to be President, but look what happened to John Kerry) sez:

"The new Democratic Congress must stop the President from escalating the war. We must not appropriate any new funding. Up to $160 billion for the war will be asked for in the spring. That would bring the total for the war for FY 2007 to $230 billion. This amount is almost double the $117 billion spent in all of FY 2006.
