Lowering the Standards

March 29, 2012

In the past, Spring Cleaning involved cleaning baseboards, washing windows, washing curtains, and cleaning out cupboards and closets.

This year I dusted.

March Madness

March 29, 2012

Ah, March Madness. An excellent time to load up on snacks, sit on the sofa, and pop in those DVDs I’ve been meaning to watch.

Evading the Point

March 22, 2012

In an effort to persuade lawmakers to vote their way on the invasive-ultrasound-before-abortion bill, some women had ultrasounds performed in the Capital building. But not the invasive ones. Which kind of negates their point.

“Does this feel invasive?” an activist asked a woman getting the traditional abdominal ultrasound.

Probably not, ma’am, since the woman volunteered for it, AND is not getting physically invaded.

Irrationality has always bugged me.


Disturbing Idaho

March 21, 2012

There’s a lot I love about Idaho, but the legislature kind of creeps me out.

First there’s the guy who wants to use live bait to hunt wolves, and says he’ll stake out the family dog as the bait. (Run, Fido! Run far!)

Then there’s the bill about the invasive ultrasounds for women getting abortions. No matter how you feel about abortions, this is one icky bill.

Less creepy, but still annoying, is Rep. Phil Hart, who has refused to pay taxes since 1996.

Unfortunately, I don’t get to vote against all of them, only the ones in my district.

If it Makes Him Happy...

March 12, 2012

The Statesman reports today: “Clark Kauffman, Filer, was presented the Don Hale Hall of Fame Award at the 2012 Idaho Hay and Forage Conference in Burley.”

I don’t know what any of it means, but I’m happy for him.
