this & that

  • For the record, I am firmly opposed to returning DKR to astroturf.
  • People who spend their time worrying about public art in places where thousands of children die of preventable diseases kindof bug me. Not that there shouldn't be beautiful things in the slums, but that money would be much better spent getting those kids out of the slums and into safe and affordable housing. These people don't listen to me.
  • If this isn't a ringing endorsement for why KBH will be a better governor than Goodhair, I don't know what is.
  • A friend who shall remain nameless participated in the Idiotarod last weekend. His team, The Real Housewives of Long Island, finished in 21st place. They wore Snuggies. And bouffants.
  • Things aren't going so well with respect to U.S.-Kyrgyzstani relations in the military relations sphere.

They're talking about FieldTurf, not AstroTurf. FieldTurf holds up really well, is much softer than Astro, and doesn't cause turf injuries.

May Kay B will get an endorsement from Tiny Fey and we can just have fun throughout the whole campaign.

FieldTurf is so much wiser economically that I thought you would be for it. It has almost no connection to AstroTurf. There hasn't been any of the old AstroTurf used for years. Too many injuries. FieldTurf means you're big new running back from Madisonville (I think) won't be slipping and sliding.....I think you should call the Athletics department and tell them you've changed your mind and they can go ahead with the purchase :)
