I cracked a couple windows in the house for some fresh, spring air, cleaned and scrubbed the inside of the car and enjoyed one of the fruits of climate change: early spring.
Owning a KIndle this article interested me. DOJ is investigating price fixing on ebooks. Is nothing sacred?
If you’re Jewish and considering voting for Mitt Romney or any other Mormon you should think twice. The LDS church baptizes deceased Jews. Can you imagine having some cult induct you into their religion without your knowledge or permission? That’s the Mormon Church. Plus they wear “magic” underwear. WTF?
The trial of Sen. Orie continues in Pittsburgh. Another staffer testified about doing extensive campaign work on taxpayer time.What’s amazing is how many lawmakers continued doing this following Jeff Habay’s conviction and those who continue doing it to this day. Stupid is as stupid does.
