Round the Horn. An Irwin J. McIckleson Production

Greetings. This is Irwin J. McIckleson commenting on the various members of the Liberal Coalition. Last week, with all the confusion, I ended up not doing one; I apologize. But three of my plants went on strike at the same time, and coordinating that number of pinkertons and hired goons is quite taxing.

blogAmy has
a picture of a ghost having a political discussion. I personally discourage political conversations with Ghosts; they tend to get hung up on stuff that they don't understand.

Say whatever happened with the Gold Standard question?

the news that the people of Pennsylania through grassroots action vetoed a pay raise for their public servants. The people, when they are united, have the power. A scary thought for an old time Plutocrat like myself.

LeftyBrown's Corner has
nominations for a new awards including Music, Comical Books, and Movies, as well as some new thing-a-ma-bob called television.

Dohiyi Mir has the
shocking suggestion that the President might be talking up an avian infection because he wants to distract people from his other missteps. That's one of the smarter moves I've seen from this president. Get people scared and they will automatically pay less attention.

Like whenever there was a little bit of union rumbling I would take Mr. Chao, a local restaurant owner for a tour of the plant. None of the men knew who he was, of course. This would scare them into working more efficiently; so as to fend of my plans to sell the plant to the dreaded Chinaman. It was very efficacious; and well worth having to spend time with a Chinaman.

Apparently this burst of intelligence isn't helping President Bush.
According to Collective Sigh, his popularity has dropped significantly. Only 41 percent approve of how he is performing his job, which can't be good for a politician.

Mercury X23's Fantabulous Blog has
a discussion of the seminal work by Thomas Moore; Utopia. I think it is an interesting read, but totally unsuited to the actual nature of man.

Happy Furry Puppy Story Time has
a discussion of several films which involve gangsters and criminals of various shades.

AND THEN . . . has a
collection of grammerphone records they think are the best of the past year.

Pen-Elayne on the Web has some
very attractive pictures of the changing of the seasons and the fall colors.

The First Draft has
comments by a leader in the Indiana National Guard, in which he disagrees with how his men are being used.

And that is it for another week. Enjoy the fall foliage and drink seasonal soups.
