    In my hometown, there was a headline after a football game “Kingsmen break through strong Trojan defense”. Had to be on purpose.

    Suddenly, I’m craving a hot dog. Or a school lunch.

    I wonder why.

    My brother just got an itemized bill for the birth of his latest, $21k. Good thing he prepaid the whole thing for $4k.

    Tell me health care costs aren’t screwed up.

    I hear the Administration wants to make snuffing them less expensive than keeping them, Jay.

  12. Jay in Ames March 21, 2012 at 12:01 pm #

    17K extra, for putting it on insurance. Amazing.

    Hey, there are a LOT of one percenters in training who need free contraceptives.

    Am not liking WordPress…..changed my screen name to what my email name is……grrrrrrrrr

  17. Jay in Ames March 21, 2012 at 12:53 pm #

    I thought KState would take out Syracuse, so I don’t see why Wisconsin won’t. WI by 5.

    Whoa, a 9-0 Supreme Court decision, with Scalia writing.

    @J’Ames
    that is wonderful news!!!! My uncle had sent emails out regarding that whole situation, basically that reversal helps out a bunch of other land owners as well.

    I think WI can take ‘Cuse if they play to the level they can play. Feel bad for Indiana, Kentucky gonna put a beat down on them.

  21. Jay in Ames March 21, 2012 at 3:38 pm #

    Meh, Kentucky already played the game of their lives, against us. They will have a letdown, and Indiana will be there to pick it up. Not predicting a win, but it could happen.

  22. lclintsp March 21, 2012 at 3:43 pm #

    Actually, Jay that was a somewhat typical game for UK. As far as IU beating them … not going to happen … UK by somewhere between 9 to 14 points.

  23. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX March 21, 2012 at 3:44 pm #

    But I thought everyone wanted us to be more like Europe:

    Judges also said that if same-sex unions became lawful, any church that refuses to marry gay couples could be charged with discrimination.

    Actually, Jay that was a somewhat typical game for UK.

    Yeah, that shooting percentage in the 2nd half? Not typical.

  25. lclintsp March 21, 2012 at 3:59 pm #

    Uh … you should have watched them all year.

  26. lclintsp March 21, 2012 at 4:00 pm #

    And of course they had up and down halves throughout the year. The victory margin after some close moments in the game was not untypical at all.

  27. LC Aggie Sith March 21, 2012 at 4:20 pm #

    Teresa, I’m all for being more like Europe….

    ….when it comes to nuclear energy 😉

  28. Jay in Ames March 21, 2012 at 4:40 pm #

    Exactly, on nuclear energy.

  29. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX March 21, 2012 at 4:52 pm #

    That article makes it pretty clear that Europe doesn’t think gay marriage is a “Human Right”….

    ….in reading the link at that article, I’m guessing that pressure from the Muslim lobbies might have a little something to do with their ruling…..

    (at least they’re good for something)

  30. Jay in Ames March 21, 2012 at 5:18 pm #

    But, according to Muslims, gays don’t exist. They just don’t.

  31. LC Aggie Sith March 21, 2012 at 5:36 pm #

    It ain’t the muslims pressuring.

    It may be a way of protecting the gay population from the muslims, though.

    So the local police dept had issued a warning about a “flasher” that was…. showing off in my neighborhood. They arrested him today.

    Turns out he may be a relative of one of my kids’ ROTC classmates.

  33. LC Aggie Sith March 21, 2012 at 6:00 pm #

    Correction: the flasher IS my kids’ friend’s brother.

    Ags, how old is the little prick?

  35. LC Aggie Sith March 21, 2012 at 8:37 pm #

    Well, according to his *ahem* bio on the news, he’s 21. Good looking kid, but his mug shot looks drugged.

    His brother is understandably appalled.

    “Ags, how old is the little prick?”
