This blog is still alive, just in semi-hibernation. When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

A Double Dose of The Decider!
We think of Washington as a place of paralysis, but bills still do get through Congress and the President then signs some of them into law. (I know; I saw it on Schoolhouse Rock.) This one pictured, signed on Monday, is called the Native American Ownership Opportunity Act of 2007.
I don't want to tip my hand, but I've been thinking about owning a Native American. Nothing flashy, not a full-blooded Cherokee or anything, maybe a Chippewa or a private label Pottawatamee.
I bet there's gonna be a ton of federal paperwork.
And I'm also dipping into the George W. Bushisms one a day calendar for this gem from July 22, 2001.
"I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe, and what I believe - I believe what I believe is right."
No need to parse this. We all recognize this as a standard statement in the international language of UnreadBookReportese.
What makes it comedy gold: the word articulate.
Thanks, Mr. President. I couldn't have made this post without you.
