Diving into the shallow pool of Web 2.0 and Social Media head first!

Today’s protesters don’t compare to those of the 60’s

Here is an interesting article by the Denver Post about protestors and police at the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Here’s a quote from the article that sums it up.

“When I saw the tear gas, I split. I don’t need to get beat down,”

I guess today’s protesters just aren’t up to standard like those of the 60’s.  Perhaps they really don’t believe in what they are protesting about and just want to protest to make trouble.

The police in Minneapolis are already conducting pre-convention raids on hippies and other protestors.  I think the police have joined forces with Cartman from South Park.  Will the Republican National Convention be any different?

Back to School

Well my kids, both in high school, went back to school on August 25th.  I go back to school on August 28th.  As always I can’t believe the summer is over.  I can’t believe I’ve got to go back to school!!!!

As always I hardly got any of the things done during the summer that I had thought I would.  Well there is always next summer.

September in the Washington D.C. area is without a doubt the best month of the year.  Summer-like days without the humidity.  So I’ll try to enjoy them while they’re here and before I get bogged down with school work.  Hopefully this will be a light semester.

Brett Farve How Sad

Johnny U, Baltimore ColtJohnny U, Baltimore Colt

Well as a Pro Football fan I can’t not comment on this.  Brett, are you out of your fricking mind?  I remember when the great Johnny Unitas went to Bolts in San Diego for one last chance at glory.  What a disaster.  Johnny U never looked right in anything but Baltimore Colts Blue.  That Chargers uniform looked terrible on him.  As I recall Johnny U didn’t play well that year and retired at the end of the season.

Brett, my fickle friend, the same will happen to you.  You turned your back on the Packers, the fanchise that made you a star, after you officially retired. (see video) The J E T S Jets uniform, although also green, will never look good on you. You’ve been a streaky QB the last couple years; hot or cold.

Johnny U, Charger?????

Johnny U, Charger?????

The Jets are a weak team and the Man-genius is going the way of Billick-the-Brain. Even if you’re hot the Jets outlook is dim at best this season.  If you’re cold it’s a disaster for you personally, the FANS and the franchise.  We’ll get to watch your fall from grace in slow motion instant replay in Hi Def 1080I or P.

Will we be treated to another boo hoo retirement press conference? My gosh the Jets don’t even have cheerleaders do they?  Barbaric in this age of enlightenment.  Well I don’t think the Packers do either so I guess that doesn’t matter.  Just ignore this paragraph.

Brett Farve, Jets?????

Brett Farve, Jets?????

You could have gone out on top.  Nobody doubted your decision to retire on top of the QB heap; one of the best of your generation.  But now you’re staking that all on the Jets? J E T S Jets.

I wish you well unless the Jets are playing my Ravens.  You’ll need all the luck you can get with the Jets.  But we all know how this is going to play out this season. Thanks for the memories good and bad.  Too bad the bad memories are the ones you’ll leave us with this season.

Broadway Joe where are you?  Tell Brett how this story ends.

Yes the trip was success

Sorry about the picture quality.  The Iphone camera isn’t that good to begin with and it is even worse in low light conditions.

New Orleans was fun as you can see and the conference was a success.
