Round the Horn. An Irwin J. McIckleson Production



Good morning all. This is Irwin J. McIckleson, fictional 1910's Plutocrat and your guide to the world of the Liberal Coalition.

Apparently some reverend has called for the assassination of the President of Venezuela. All I can say is that Father Domingo (my priest) needs to talk to this reverend. When I wanted to "take care of" a local union leader, he got all over my case. It was not pleasant at all.

blogAmY has
a post about how Great Britain is considering guidelines for deporting hate preachers, and suggests such guidelines might be used with Reverend Robertson (who made the assassination comment above).

Happy Furry Puppy Story Time has a
further selection of quotes by this Reverend Robertson. These quotes make him sound somewhat delusional (the one's I understand anyway.

AND THEN . . . has
a story I find fascinating. Apparently the plans to build robots did eventually bear fruit - but said fruit was reduced to acting in movies of a questionable nature.

LeftyBrown's Corner has
a section on his favorite ten things of the week, none of which I understand in the least. But he seems very passionate on the subject.

Collective Sigh has
a section on how President Bush is running the corporation like a business. He gives some very good advice on what a president of a struggling corporation might do - either work day and night to fix the problems or gut it and abandon it. Both are good strategies, but of course the real answer is to do your research ahead of time, so that if a company has problems, you don't end up buying it in the first place.

Dihiyi Mir has a
nice photo that shows that Mrs. Sheehan is still being thought of.

President Bush is out shoring up support in those areas that still support him, according to
a story at Rooks Rant. That doesn't strike me as the most courageous plan of action.

T. Rex's Guide to Life has
the information that profiling based on race is apparently ineffective. I have to say that is not something I would have thought, but the argument is pretty convincing.

Anyway that's it for another week - hope you are all enjoying your Friday. I know I will enjoy mine; apparently one of the employees took a hammer home with him. So I am having them all flogged as a lesson. And then home for roast goose and pudding. So a very enjoyable day for me; I hope you have the same.
