God Hates Shrimp -- even better parody in some ways. I wish they had t-shirts. Note their banner below; they have others for your amusement too:
Edit: I'd almost forgotten about this interview where a Fox News anchor goes off on one of the Phelps clan. What I didn't know was that the interview was about this very same case; the father of the dead marine is interviewed first. I imagine you've all seen this, but if you haven't, please look. If you just want to see the fireworks, skip ahead to where the woman is being interviewed.
Edit 2: Ok, the WBC domain is no longer godhatesfags.com, but godhatesamerica.com. Fixed above.
Los Angeles is almost surrounded by a ring of fire. I imagine it's not actually that bad -- it's just the way the map looks, but it still sounds pretty bad over there. The fires farther south near San Diego seem like they're burning the most homes and displacing the most people though.
... was the last car accident. Most years around this time I've been out of town for a week or so. I really regret not going for the past two years, not only because I miss my friends, but also I'd probably be a lot better off.
One of my hearing aids was found Monday morning by someone who lives near me. I found out about it Monday evening, and got the hearing aid back Tuesday afternoon. I'm still missing the other one, plus a Palm Pilot (Vx) and a set of car keys. Spent some time looking for them yesterday, now that I'm relatively sure they're out of the house. Also talked to about 4 different people along the route where I think I walked, asking them to keep an eye out and an ear open. Assuming I get time today, I'm going to e-mail the neighborhood mailing list and get someone to forward a copy to the Old North Durham mailing list (where the other aid was found).
Wow, it's actually thundering and raining outside. At the moment, NWS is saying we might get an inch of rain. That's nice, but just to put things in perspective, we're about 10 inches down for the year right now. We've also come out of the rainy season locally (except for tropical storms).
