Imagine you're relaxing at a fine Egyptian resort in the Sinai, you're out by the pool nibbling on some fresh dates, waiting for a fresh cup of coffee to be delivered by a hotel attendant. It's a gorgeous day and you think you might make a day trip to see those amazing pyramids. You're about to bring another succulent date to your mouth when..... an explosion rocks through the hotel behind you sending debris helter-skelter, a deathly black plum of smoke fills the air. Are your family and friends gone? Are others lying lifeless around you? Are you covered in shattered glass? Do you weep while trying to help others to safety? Maybe so. But if you're John Kerry, apparently you dust the glass off your jacket and look around for your hairstylist while exclaiming, "What a nuisance!" Terrorism has never been a nuisance to those who have experienced it directly and it is certainly a bad idea to suggest that the value of certain lives lost in an act of terror, may it be in New York or Israel, are events to be categorized as a nuisance.
Whenever I hear The Who on the radio, I expect a car commercial. Whenever I hear the Rolling Stones, a TV commercial. Make it stop!

I am driving up Boulevard in Atlanta on the way to work and am waiting at the light when a bicyclist, wearing his helmet and bike pants comes across the other way, manuveuring like a fine sailboat on a choppy asphalt sea. It was indeed poetry in motion to watch him command his vehicle, disappearing in the distance.
After having a few beers one night, an old friend and I got into a wildly intelligent discussion.
The crowd around Kate Eschelbach stood up; the noise level rose as the crowd started cheering for their favorite horses making their way around the final curve and into the homestretch.

I believe in physical exercise just as much as anyone else but I don't think it is safe to jog, walk or ride a bike along Jonesboro Road during morning rush hour. It may not be safe at any time during the day but certainly it is not in the morning with commuters and school bus drivers fighting each other for every bit of available road space.
Political parties are like religions.
Postseason baseball is here, so I'm a fan again.
It's Halloween year around at my apartment building.

Lazlo is a 3-month-old tabby domestic medium-hair. He has been neutered and vaccinations are current. When he was only a few weeks old, Lazlo became a victim of animal cruelty when he was tossed from a moving vehicle. Luckily, his injuries were minor and he recuperated quickly. He's a sweet kitten who craves human attention. For adoption information call the Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.
