Pan Mass Challenge

Once again, I'm riding to help the Jimmy Fund help fight cancer in children. Last year I road over 170 miles to support their efforts and raised over $2000. This year I'm riding over 190 miles and looking to raise over $3500.

There are children who are fighting for their lives everyday against cancer.

Please help out the cause by donating what you can to the Jimmy Fund.

The link at the end of this email will take you to my Pan-Mass Challenge Profile. This is my personal fundraising website for the PMC. Join me in reaching this year's $27 million goal. Last year's $26 million gift to the Jimmy Fund of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute represented 99% of every check and credit card donation.

In the picture that's me on the right and co-riders/fundraisers Stu and Kyle at about 70 mile point on day 1 of the two day ride.

Dems Hold Breath

So the Democrats want to pull an all-nighter and debate surrender in Iraq.
... the Democratic-led U.S. Senate began a rare around-the-clock session on Tuesday to push President George W. Bush and fellow Republicans to end the Iraq war. [...]

"The Senate spending a sleepless night is no great sacrifice," Assistant Senate Democratic Leader Dick Durbin of Illinois said in opening the debate. "Soldiers and families who pray for them spend many sleepless nights."
How childish. What's next holding their breath until they turn blue? But it also turns out Senator Durbin is spot on when he proclaims "(S)pending a sleepless night is no great sacrifice." It turns out that, in the Senate, going sleepless simply means having a big slumber party:
In preparation for the all-night session, the portable beds were ordered set up in a room near the Senate, an aide said. Pillows, snacks and toothbrushes were also brought in.
Gee, maybe they can have a pillow fight and get Domino's to deliver while they are at it. Some "sacrifice" that. Have a good sleepover, children.

Dispatch From the Religion of Peace, Continued

The ROPers in Iran are at it again.
Iran said on Tuesday that a man convicted of adultery had been stoned to death in a village in northwestern Iran, the first time it has confirmed such an execution in five years.
"This case has been recently executed in the village that was mentioned," judiary spokesman Alireza Jamshidi told reporters about the stoning of Jafar Kiani in a village in Qazvin province.
So what does an Islamic stoning look like? Well, it depends if you are a man or a woman:
Under the punishment of stoning, a male convict is buried up to his waist with his hands tied behind his back, while a female offender is buried up to her neck with her hands also buried.
Apparently, Allah forbid that the people hurling the stones see that woman's body. Barbarians, pure and simple.

More Global Warming Nonsense

This is precisely why I loathe the global warming alarmists. They have set up a scenario in which all weather events confirm their "theory" that human life is destroying the planet:
Officials at Live Earth Johannesburg have blamed the effects of climate change for poor audience attendance at Saturday's South African event. Organiser John Langford believes extremely cold weather in the region - it snowed last week for the first time in a quarter of a century - kept people away from the concert . . .
Apparently, unless we hit the average high and low temps at every place on earth every day, it is confirmation of "climate change." Haven't these people ever heard of a "falsifiable" theory?

Oh How I Love This!

Al Gore's son busted for drugs in hybrid car:
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The 24-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore was arrested for drug possession on Wednesday after he was stopped for speeding in his hybrid Toyota Prius, a sheriff's official said.

Al Gore III -- whose father is a leading advocate of policies to fight global warming - was driving his environmentally friendly car at about 100 miles per hour on a freeway south of Los Angeles when he was pulled over by an Orange County sheriff's deputy at about 2:15 a.m.

The deputy smelled marijuana and searched the car, said sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino. The search turned up a small amount of marijuana, along with prescription drugs including Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Adderall and Soma. There were no prescriptions found, he said.
Item #1: Who knew a Prius could do 100??
Item #2: Ya gotta love the idea of Al Gore lecturing you and me about our "carbon footprint" while his son creates a "cannabis footprint."
Item #3: If my dad was Al Gore, I would need more serious drugs than Valium, Xanax, Vicodin, Adderall and Soma.
