by Skip October 21, 2013

Oh, Sidenote first (because it IS just that kind of day): OK, Landrigan, you and DiStaso are a pair today.  He can’t tell a TEA Partier from shinola and you can’t even get the names straight: “Bragdon goes on offense in offering defense”.  Even as we are castigated as mere bloggers, all I keep hearing […]

by Skip April 14, 2013

The last video from yesterday’s Honor Your Oath Rally – which, er, isn’t much of a video.  It seems that the e-Gremlins decided to go nest in my camera for the last part of the rally – the files holding the closing remarks by Jack Kimball and Jeff Chidester got corrupted when I went to […]

NHJournal – Where Spelling Is More Important Than Integrity

by Steve MacDonald December 19, 2012

I have to admit that Shawn Millerick got me good when he said I couldn’t spell.  Actually the problem is that I am not terribly adept at typing and I try to squeeze out posts before work and after the kids go to bed.  I’m not always thorough.  But on a positive note, I don’t […]

With This Bunch Failure Is Always An Option

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2012

I’m torn between thinking this is just sad or that it’s just funny.  Maybe ironic is a better word?
