So how close is Chocola to GOP corruption?

A little too close for my taste...

Chocola has taken:

* $40,000 from Tom DeLay's ARMPAC.
* $8,000 from Bob Ney, the first congressman to be implicated based on the Jack Abramoff guilty plea.

With all of these ties to the DeLay/Abramoff mess, is it any surprise that Chocola has:

* Voted to weaken House ethics rules when DeLay proposed doing so as GOP Majority Leader.
* Voted with Tom DeLay 94% of the time (through 3/31/2006)

Chocola has taken:

* $1,000 from "the Dukestir."
* $5,000 from "Duke's" PAC.

We really need a change in our representation... Vote Joe Donnelly for IN-02 House of Representative's seat!

Snakes on a Plane not a "huge" blockbuster

The snakes seem to have won this one... from the Indy Star:

The Internet buzz over "Snakes on a Plane" turned out to be nothing to hiss about. The high-flying thriller preceded by months of unprecedented Web buildup technically debuted as the No. 1 movie, but with a modest $15.25 million opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

I wonder if it would have done better if it were released earlier this summer?

18 year olds on a jury, oh no!

Talk about a non story... from the Indy Star:

A statewide effort to create larger, more diverse jury pools is sending more young people -- even some high school seniors -- onto Indiana's juries.

The new procedures cull the names of potential jurors from rolls of registered voters, licensed drivers and tax records. Automatic jury exemptions have also been eliminated.

The changes mean more young people are getting summonses, bringing younger faces and different perspectives into courts to help decide the outcome of trials.

Come on, if you are 18 you can be on a jury. Jeez, who has a problem with that?

Rumor Mill...

I hear that there is $4 gas in Peru, Indiana.


Of course, I predicted this. Of course, my father could be wrong about it and was lying to me... but I doubt it.

Now it is time to put my awesome powers of prediction to good use... TO THE LOTTERY TICKET RETAILER!

(after all, I will need money to afford 4 dollar gas.)

What's up with me?

So what ever is wrong with me? Well this might shed some light on it.

I live with depression, and I am experiencing another bought. Or is that spelled bout? Anyway, I am not feeling up to posting at the moment.

I shall return, take care of yourselves.

PS- the right word is "bout". :)
