In relation to my last post -

"Lord Tebbitt raged: "If she would have been happy to have been a terrorist then I would have been happy to have seen her shot as she carried out her acts of terrorism."

The politician's wife Margaret was paralysed in the Brighton IRA bomb blast in 1984 when the Conservatives were holding their party conference.

Lord Tebbitt added: "Perhaps she would like to come and tell my wife why she supports the IRA, why she would have joined the IRA."

Oh Rose McGowan.  You fulfill my dream to see Peers of the Realm and former Conservative chairmen voraciously berate Americans.  Lovely!

Had an interesting micro-conversation yesterday.  Yes, I do rather like red-heads.  No, Miss McGowan does not count.

She's an honorary blonde.

... with a ski mask.

I think that we have a serious problem with urban planning in this country.  Our cities are not old enough to justify some of the massive inefficiencies in traffic and population management.  Some one should do something about that.

Which reminds me that the serious parking problem at Universities is a noxious plague, a pox on all mankind.  Or at least all those who attend university.  I typically arrive no later than 7:20 A.M. and I still have to scramble for a parking space.

I'd have to check, but I'm pretty sure that the book of Leviticus states that this sortof thing is an abomination.  Wallace, a budy of mine, agrees.

There were gaggles of barely post-pubescent girls on every corner between my car and the law school.  They braved the brisk, cool morning in their short-shorts to urge me to vote for Jen.  Or Aiken.  And a couple of other names that sound like they belonged in a reality television lineup.

I told them I'd vote for Lucifer Morningstar if he could get my car with a five minute walk of the Law School.

This confused them.

... irony?  It's there if you're looking for it.

People I would gladly hunt and kill:

1.) Hippies
2.) the people behind the BlueBook and it's accompanying Interactive Citation Workbook.

That's right; at long last I've found someone else to hate.  Though really, I suppose I should list them in reverse order, as really I feel only disdain for hippies... but those others?  I really hate them.

I think that I'm still, after all this time, shell-shocked by how inexpensive ice cream is here.

Interactive Citation Workbook?! Where?! Does it cost money?

It does, and it's evil. Some LRW classes use it, some don't; but there are BlueBook and AWRwhateverthehellitis versions. It's gawd awful.
