Round the Horn. An Irwin J. McIckleson Production



Hello all, this is Irwin J. McIckleson, fictional 1910's plutocrat. I am here to provide you with a look round the internet.

Farm Runoff has a
very amusing joke concerning the drug Marijauna. I understand you future generations have quite a drug problem. Another sign that future generations have a lot less moral fiber. In my day we could handle drugs without getting worked up about them. Still this is a very funny joke.

Natalie Davis' All Facts and Opinions has
an article on Organic Food, which is apparently a very big commodity in your society. I have to say the future sounds a little scary at times. At any rate her article covers how to buy organic vegetables and fruits and which ones are better if grown organically.

Speaking of organic food, blogAmy has
a picture of a very healthy looking specimen of fish, and according to All Facts and Opinion, all fish are more or less equally organic. Also the picture looks very nice.

Bloggg has
a piece on the proposal to hand over management of seaports to some people from the middle east. Basically, while Americans can expect to be spied on and monitored to protect them from terrorists, people who come from the part of the world where the terrorists are from can run the ports. That sounds troubling to me.

Dohiyi Mir has
further thoughts on this port deal; apparently the Democrats have responded to it forcefully, letting Republicans know that they need to be more aware of the dangers of the modern world.

Collective Sigh
pondered this question; if President Bush is so determined to stop terrorism, the numbers are going the opposite direction?

The News Blog has
a story on the recent destruction of a Muslim holy site in Iraq and how that may be the end of what little peace there has been in that country.

And that is it for another week - hope you all do well and if you can't do well, at least do medium.
