and another thing . . .

If I hear one more person refer to marriage as an institution, I think I'll throw up.

This marriage I'm in is not an institution; it's a relationship.

Anyone who's paying attention knows institutions are waning while relationships are rising. I don't think we can't have it both ways.

beyond ridiculous

Ann Coulter was absolutely lost in the woods on the Today Show this morning. It is disheartening to know that this person has ever been taken seriously. Find the video where you can — it's at Salon's VideoDog today and I imagine it will be everywhere tomorrow.

Someone on her side should try to wise Ms. Coulter up. Or not.

come November

It is painful to look at your father and realize the old man should not be allowed to manage his own money anymore. This is the discovery the country has made about the party in power. They are inept. The checkbook needs to be taken away. They will rant, they will screech, they will wave their canes at you and call you all sorts of names, but you have to do what you have to do.
