Getting in the "Halloween mood"...

It's almost October and just get you all a little creeped out before we dive headlong into the Halloween season, here's a little video to set the tone...

My favorite quotes from last night...

These are a few of my favorite quotes from the McCain / Obama debate last night:

“I think​ Senat​or McCai​n’s absol​utely​ right​ that we need more respo​nsibi​lity…​”

“Sena​tor McCai​n is absol​utely​ right​ that the earma​rks proce​ss has been abuse​d…”

“He’s​ also right​ that often​times​ lobby​ists and speci​al inter​ests are the ones that are intro​ducin​g these​…requ​ests…​”

“John​ menti​oned the fact that busin​ess taxes​ on paper​ are high in this count​ry,​ and he’s absol​utely​ right​…”

“John​ is right​ we have to make cuts…​”

“Sena​tor McCai​n is absol​utely​ right​ that the viole​nce has been reduc​ed as a conse​quenc​e of the extra​ordin​ary sacri​fice of our troop​s and our milit​ary famil​ies…”​

“John​ — you’r​e absol​utely​ right​ that presi​dents​ have to be prude​nt in what they say…”​

“Sena​tor McCai​n is absol​utely​ right​,​ we canno​t toler​ate a nucle​ar Iran…​”

It seems that Obama DOES think McCain "gets it" on some issues.       :-)

Just the facts ma'am...

(I found an article at the Fox News website and thought I would do my part to diffuse the misinformation campaign currently raging against Sarah Palin by posting parts of it here as the election draws closer. The article was written by Maxim Lott)

Palin “Wants Creationism Taught in School”

The Charge: Palin opposes the teaching of evolution, and would mandate the teaching of creationism in the state’s public schools.

The Facts: Palin said during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign that she would not push the state Board of Education to add creation-based alternatives to the state’s required curriculum, or look for creationism advocates when she appointed board members. She has kept this pledge, according to the Associated Press.

Palin has spoken in favor of classroom discussions of creationism, in some cases. “I don’t think there should be a prohibition against debate if it comes up in class. It doesn’t have to be part of the curriculum,” Palin told the Anchorage Daily News in a 2006 interview.

(See: ‘Creation science’ enters the race; Palin is only candidate to suggest it should be discussed in schools. By Tom Kizzia, Anchorage Daily News, 27 October 2006)

I don't like Ike...

Well here we sit with a major hurricane just about to make landfall on the Texas shore. In roughly 12 hours or so, some part of this system will impact the DFW area as well. We can use the rain, but I feel bad for the damage that will occur south of us tonight. What happens here will be nothing by comparison.

I am sure there will be loss of life. If you pray, please say a prayer for those who will most likely lose loved ones tonight.

The house where Superman was born...

I found this video oddly compelling. I thought I'd pass it on...
