Back to what's important

Great letter to the editor in this morning's Los Angeles Times:

Goodbye annoying, nasty ads, so long dirt-flinging rhetoric and farewell to the constant assault of pounding negative nonsense into our heads minute by minute, hour after hour and month after month.

Now we can go back to the really important ads: being brainwashed about being sick and needing every single pill that has been manufactured in the universe for illnesses we never even knew we had. Can't wait.

Yes--this is why I listen to NPR--even if I don't agree with what's being said all the time, at least there are no ads! :)

Hi CaliValleyGirl!

It's KC!

I'm back!!!

I missed you very much, and I missed reading your blog. I explained briefly over on my little webspot why I abandoned my blog for a short time, but I promise not to do that again!

I hope we can still be blogging buddies. :) I'll be tuning in daily to your blog from here on out!

Hope things are going great for you! :)

What about those telemarketing calls??? I couldn't believe someone called my house and asked if they could count on my HUSBAND's vote. Apparently they didn't have my name associated with the number. I stammered, "er, uh. yeah, sure you can" all the while thinking of how I am a margin of error vote :)

Ok, second comment of the day-I've been updating myself on what you've been up to!

I also have been to the part of Alabama several times you mention in your posts . I never got the guts to try the boiled peanuts, though. I think I remember they had "green" peanuts as well. Maybe they're the same? It was all foreign to a northerner like me. :)

I felt like I was in a Norman Rockwell painting, too! That's the perfect way to describe it.

My absolute FAVORITE part of visiting the base was to go on post and watch the helicopters land and take off-I only ever got to go to the Blackhawk field, and the TH-67's. I wanted to watch the Apaches, but just never got around to it. The next time you visit, you have to ask the boyfriend to take you to watch them take off and land at night. It's without a doubt one of the coolest things I've ever seen. Watching all the different lights go and seeing the outline of the helicopters (just barely) against the night sky was AMAZING. And when they take off and hover right above the ground?

*Sigh*...I think I ended up liking helicopters almost as much as the (now former) boy did! Haha.

Ok, I'm done commenting on your blog for today-I promise! :)

I hate to say it as a poli sci major, but it's so very true.
